Do you eat Frogs?

My sister calls these no bake cookies Frogs. 

This week she found the recipe and pinned it on Pinterest,   I call them macaroons but after looking at the recipe a bit closer, I discovered that they are not the old fashion macaroons that am used to making.  
Grace's Dance team is having a fundraising bake sale tomorrow.   I thought I'd try this new recipe and package up for the fund-raiser.     They taste like a Reeces peanut butter cup.  They are delicious and its a keeper recipe for me.  I hope they make a bit of money for the team.

The recipe is as follows:

Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies   ( I'll call them peanut butter macaroons)
1/2 C Butter
2 C Sugar

1/2 C Milk
4 Tbsp Cocoa
1/2 C Peanut Butter
3- 3 1/2 C Quick cooking Oats
2 tsp. Vanilla

Add the first 4 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil, and boil for 1 minute. Stir in the next 3 ingredients and drop onto wax/foil paper. Le
t cool until set. 

PS:  and here's what they look like all packaged up in cello bags.  See my cute tag... that's twice this week that I've used this cutter.... I think it's going to get a lot of use.

they look lovely. My SIL makes these and we call them Uncooked cookies. My family devours them by the dozen! Unfortunately I detest p.b., so I have to have a different variety
Hope they're a good fundraiser.
