Quick & simple "cookie" recipe that requires no baking. Mom used to make these often, and I would always steal cookies before they had fully cooled and set (you know what I'm talking about!)
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1⁄2 cup cocoa
- 1 cup coconut
- 3 cups oatmeal
- Heat sugar, milk, vanilla, and butter to boil.
- Boil for 3 minutes only (use a timer).
- Take pot off stove.
- Mix in remaining ingredients.
- Drop by spoonful onto ungreased waxed paper.
- Let cool before eating.
- Makes 4 dozen.
most delicious thing I have put in my mouth, however I had serious problems trying to scoop them and drop them and have them stay together. this MAY be because I am new at it or it might just be a bit dry.
Such a classic Mom recipe! There was only 2 of us eating them so I split the recipe in half, used 3/4 cup sugar and sweetened coconut. I didn't even have wax paper but they are coming off of the non stick pan fine. They are almost half gone! A quick, one-pan recipe with delicious results - thank you. :)
I only used 2 1/2 cups of oats because I ran out...I added a little extra coconut as a substitute. These taste great, but I wasn't crazy about the consistency. Mine were kind of dry and crumbly and the "dough" was hard to work with...kept crumbling apart on me. I'm not sure I'd make this recipe again, but a couple friends at work appreciated them!
