Chocolate Nut Chews
*A no-bake candy that kids love.  But watch out, they'll wipe them out!

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup dry cocoa
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups rolled oats

In heavy 2-quart saucepan over medium heat combine the sugar, cocoa, evaporated milk and margarine, stirring until sugar dissolves.  Bring to a bubbly boil and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat, stirring in peanut butter until melted.  Add vanilla and oatmeal and mix quickly.  Use 2 teaspoons to drop onto waxed paper.  Allow to cool until set.  Store in airtight container.  Makes about 3 dozen pieces.
