My grandmother made these from my earliest recollections (1950's era). She made these and every year she would send a big box of goodies to us for Chrismtas and this was what my brothers and I looked for before any toys, clothes or other food stuff.
1/4 c. peanut butter
2 c. white granulated sugar
1/2 c. milk

Add 3 c. Quick Oatmeal
3 c. cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla

Drop by spoonful on waxed paper or table top.
