Drop cookies, chocolate macaroons, haystacks, whatever you called them growing up, amazingly easy little chocolate no bake cookies are perfect for the holidays!

I thought this would be a good one to write up officially since every time I have googled it nothing really comes up! I have seen this floating around Facebook lately as well so here it is!

Ingredients:

  • 6 Tbsp Cocoa
  • 1/2 C milk
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1.5 C white sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp vanilla
  • 3 C oatmeal (quick oats)
  • 1 C shredded coconut

Instructions are super easy, making this a great choice to make with kids!

Bring the cocoa, butter, milk and sugar to a boil, in a pot for 2 mins. Now here some people say remove from heat, but I leave it on the stove on low while I add the vanilla, oats and coconut, this way it doesn’t start to set on you while you’re still mixing. Once you have it thoroughly mixed, drop by the teaspoon full onto either wax or parchment paper on the counter and let them sit until they are dry.

That I think is officially the hardest part, it can take hours sometimes for them to full set! Pure torture! Once they are set you’re done! Perfect thing to make up quick before a holiday party!20151210_090242 (1)
