She started with the chewy peanut bars first.
1/4 cup margarine or butter, 1 cup peanut butter, 1 - 14oz can sweetened condensed milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 2 cups quick-cooking oats, 1/2 cup coarsley chopped peanuts and 1/2 cup raisins.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In large saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Remove from heat and add peanut butter, condensed milk, vanilla and salt and mix well. Stir in oats, peanuts and raisins. Spread evenly into greased 13" X 9" pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool thoroughly and cut into bars.
Mitch and I need to whine about the addition of the raisins, mom! They are NOT on our food acceptable list, ya know! You're being mean by teasing us!
2 cups sugar, 2 1/2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 1/2 cup peanut butter and 2 cups quick-cooking oats.
Combine sugar and cocoa in a large saucepan; add milk, stirring until smooth. Add butter. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes
Remove from heat after 2 minutes is up. Add peanut butter and stir until melted. Add oats, mixing well. Let mixture cool until it firms a wee bit - like 10 minutes. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper; cool completely.
We have another gripe here, mom! um chocolate is not allowed either! I'm not even going to bother getting out of my resting position because now you're just being down-right cruel!
No we did NOT get a taste of this one before it hit the waxed paper but we did get a lick of peanut butter off the spatula! How generous you are, mom!
Here's the finished product. Mom says it tastes more like candy than cookies! They look so yummy but no taste for us!
Have a great time at the suprise pawty, mom and dad! Maybe you can bring us a doggie bag of acceptable treats! We'll be waiting!
So until next time..............
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
