  • 1/2 cup whole milk

  • 2 1/2 cups quick cooking oats uncooked
  • 3/4 cup dry roasted lightly salted peanuts

The Method

  • Stir together the granulated sugar, whole milk, butter, and vanilla extract in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook for 1 minute. Increase the heat and bring to a boil over medium-high.

Let stand at room temperature until completely cool, about 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
