2nd Easiest Cookies Ever...NO BAKE COOKIES

Remember these old things??  I remember making No-Bake Cookies on Sunday nights in Mom's large, heavy pot (with the handles broken off). I'm never sorry when I make these...they always hit the spot. 

2 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup milk
1 pinch salt
3 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. In a saucepan bring sugar, cocoa, margarine, milk, and salt to a rapid boil for 1 minute.
2. Add quick cooking oats, peanut butter, and vanilla; mix well.
3. Working quickly, drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper, and let cool.
