No Bake Cookies

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.
