Oatmeal Candy

Tonight we made Oatmeal Candy! BUT we modified the recipe, as the directions omit the addition of margarine, and the oatmeal was raw the first time. Here is our recipe: 1 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup margarine or butter, 1/2 cup milk, 3 Tbs cocoa, 2 1/2 cups oatmeal; bring sugar, cocoa and milk to a boil. Add oatmeal and boil 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in margarine until melted. Drop on parchment paper with a teaspoon and allow to cool. Eat.
