No-bake cookies

I can't believe I haven't posted these! Easy cookies for those learning how to cook.

-Mom Pulsipher

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cocoa
pinch salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups quick oats (we like 2 cups oats + 1 cup coconut)

In large saucepan, combine sugar, milk, cocoa, salt and butter and mix well. Bring to  boil and cover saucepan for 30 seconds to allow steam to wash sugar crystals down sides of pan. Stir mixture and bring to a boil that can't be stirred down for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. Add oats and mix well. Let mixture stand for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to let the oats absorb some of the liquid. Drop mixture by spoonfuls onto Silpat or waxed paper.
