No bake cookies

Its been a very dreary week here in Michigan, which makes the days go by so very slow! I had a craving for something chocolate, so off to the kitchen to see what I had on hand to make that wouldn't take to long. The light bulb went off when I saw the cocoa in the cupboard.

Stir all together until blended and butter is melted on low heat. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly

Then drop by tablespoonful onto wax paper and allow to cool/set (this is the hardest part for me! I want chocolate NOW!!)
