No-Bake Cookies

These are little sugar bombs. There are lots of recipes out there for this, but this is the right one!  Many others are too dry.

Makes: almost 5 dozen
Calories per cookie: ~100

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1½ cups dessicated coconut
  • 3 cups quick or porridge oats
Combine the cocoa, sugar, butter, milk and vanilla.  Melt together over low heat.  Bring to a boil over low/medium-low heat, then allow it to boil for one minute.  Remove from heat.

Add peanut butter, coconut, and oats and mix well.  Drop by small spoonfuls onto wax or baking paper and let cool.
