I've been making these cookies since I was old enough to help my mom. I have never added nuts, but I'm sure that would be a good addition. Also, I add the peanut butter AFTER I take the saucepan off of the heat...I find it helps the cookies maintain some firmness.

They tasted delicous, what of them I could get in my mouth! I don't know what I did wrong, but mine never hardened! I ate one with a spoon, but wound up throwing the rest away, they were just globs of goop on the wax paper!

These were so good.. they didn't last long enough to keep in the refigerator. The one thing I will do different next time is to omit the walnuts. Or at least chop them down more.

Very good, the family liked them more than I did. I will add more peanut butter next time, I think that's what is missing!

They were really good but mine did not stick together! I'm not sure where I went wrong but, I'm using what's left of them as a topping for an apple crisp.. mmmm!

I had the issue with these not setting as well the first time. Here is the not add the peanut butter in the saucepan. Mix it with the oats instead. I bring the cocoa, milk, butter, sugar mixture to a boil slowly and once boiling, boil for 2 minutes only. The 5-20 wass way too long.
