No-Bake Chocolate Pretzel Cookies

3/4 cup pure cane sugar
1/2 stick gfcf margarine
3/4 tablespoon cocoa
1/4 cup cf milk
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup oats (processed in a gluten-free facility)
1 cup crushed GFCF pretzels

Bring sugar, margarine, cocoa and milk to a rolling boil and cook for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Add oats and then pretzels. Stir to combine. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto wax or parchment paper. Cool completely. Makes about 15.

~ A new twist on an old-fashioned no-bake cocoa and oats recipe! If there is a peanut allergy, perhaps you could use another type of nut butter...? ~
