Peanut Butter Squares

I've been going through my mother-in-laws recipes recently and I came across this one. I just had to try it.
The ingredients remind me of those that Mee-Mee (my grandmother) used to use when she made peanut butter no-bakes. Chocolate no-bakes are good too but peanut butter are my favorite.

Anyways, I mixed these up yesterday and OH MY!

Peanut Butter Heaven!
They tasted like warm peanut butter fudge with oatmeal.

I decided to place mine in the refrigerator to let cool and then I cut them into squares. They were still good after that but they are best eaten right off the spoon when they are still warm.

These are a good treat to make on a hot summer day when you don't want to turn the oven on and heat the house up. Also, I took advantage of Kroger's add last week and stocked up on their peanut butter while it was on sale for .99¢ so I had plenty to use.

Peanut Butter Squares

4 cups sugar
1 cup milk
2 sticks butter
18 oz. jar of peanut butter
6 cups quick oats
1 tsp. vanilla
Combine sugar, milk & butter in a pan.
Mix and bring to a boil.
Boil for 1 1/2 minutes.
Remove from heat and add peanut butter, oats and vanilla.
Mix and let set for 1 minute.
Pour onto a waxed paper lined cookie sheet.
Let cool and cut into squares.
