No-Bake Cocoa Drop Cookies

Not necessarily a healthy choice, but a good sweet treat for a night hanging with friends and kids.  The trick is to buy a good, quality cocoa.  I get mine at a chocolaterie in Ames. Well worth the extra price.  I'm sorry I don't have a photo for this one, but my guests the other night ate them all before I could get one!

1 3/4 cups white sugar
1/2 cup soy milk
1/2 cup vegan butter
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Put sugar, soy milk, vegan butter and cocoa powder in saucepan and bring to boil while stirring constantly.  When it reaches a full boil, let it boil for 90 seconds.  Turn off heat.  Stir in peanut butter, oats and vanilla.  Drop onto wax paper or cookie sheet and let cool completely.
