Easy and delightful indeed, but where do i add in the peanut butter?

Reviewer: MIMI
To clarify: peanut butter is stirred in to the liquid content AFTER the vanilla has been added.

Hi Anita, The person who submitted this recipe forgot to say when to add the peanut butter. You mix it in with the oats, salt and vanilla and melted butter....Diana, Diana's Desserts

Our family has been making these for 50+ years. Over med-low heat bring oleo, sugar, salt and milk and cocoa to a slow boil. After you see the first bubble, count off one minute. Now remove pot from stove. Stir in vanilla. Stir in the remaining dry ingredients. We add 1/3 cup of coconut and sometimes use crunchy peanut butter. Option #2: 1/2 cup oleo, 2 c sugar, 3 Tlb cocoa, 1 c grated apple, pinch of salt,3 c quick oats, 1 c chopped nuts, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/3 c coconut(optional). Melt oleo. Add sugar,cocoa,apple,& salt. Boil 1 min. Remove from heat. Add nuts, oats, coconut. We have never refrigerated the no-bakes. If cookies are too hard- boiled too long. If cookies are too soft- not boiled long enough. Recently we discovered Dutch processed cocoa...excellent!
