splat cookies

2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk, cream, or evaporated milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter
generous pinch of salt
1/4 cup dark cocoa
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
3 cups oatmeal
1 tsp vanilla

Throw the sugar, milk (or whatever you are using), butter, salt and cocoa into a heavy bottomed pan.  Cook on medium heat stirring occasionally until it comes to a boil.  Stir constantly for 3 minutes while it is boiling. Remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla.  Stir until the peanut butter has melted. Drop in the chocolate chips and give a good stir, then stir in the oats. If the mixture begins to seize up on you, place over a gentle heat to loosen it up a bit...if it still is being funky, add a bit more milk (cream, evap milk)...just a tad at a time.  Using a tablespoon, drop onto a lined cookie sheet and let cool.
