These are great for people who aren’t a huge fan of peanut butter. They are so easy and it’s nice not to have to heat your kitchen up with an oven in order to get a sweet treat sometimes! Children love to get in on the “dropping” step of making these.
2 cup sugar
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1/2 cup butter or margarine (I usually stick with butter)
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup flaked coconut
6 tbs. baking cocoa
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1-In a saucepan combine the sugar, milk and butter.
2-Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
3-Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
4-Stir in the oats, coconut, cocoa, and vanilla.
5-Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto waxed paper (I also use parchment paper if that’s what I have on hand-it works fine).
6-Let stand until set.
*You can also freeze these.
