Ever -wish you could just whip up a bit of chocolate-y goodness on the boat but haven't quite figured out a way to do it without an oven and with ingredients that are easy to carry?  Whether as an evening treat as you're star-gazing at anchor or an afternoon snack on an active day, these Chocolate-Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies are delicious, take only 10 minutes, require just one burner on the stove and have several variations!

Chocolate-Oatmeal No-Bake Cookies.

Total Time    10 Minutes

Makes about 1 dozen cookies (depending on size)

1 cup of sugar

1/4 cup butter or margarine

1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa

1/4 cup milk or water

2 tablespoons peanut butter (creamy or crunchy: optional )

1 1/2 cups oatmeal ( instant or quick cooking are best, but you can use old-fashioned)

Mix all ingredients EXCEPT oatmeal in a saucepan.  Bring to boil, stirring constantly.  Boil 3 minutes Remove from fire and stir in oatmeal

For "Cookies" - drop onto waxed paper or aluminum foil coated with cooking spray.

For " bars" - line a pan ( I use an 7" frying pan ) with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.  Put mixture into the pan and press it down. Cut into bars when cool.

Variation:  If you don't have oatmeal, you can use corn flakes or Rice Krispies or any similiar cereal
