No time to bake? Try No Bake Chocolate Haystack Cookies!
This is my most popular recipe of all time… who knew?
These timeless kid-friendly gems are so easy. Just mix, let set and enjoy! The blend of coconut, chocolate and oats is a simple and easy treat for kids and the kids-at-heart. These babies are more like a cookie than a granola bar, but not as moist as a macaroon. The great part is they take just 10 minutes from start to eat, with no baking!
I love to make these as an addition to a cookie platter over the holidays. The colour and shape really adds great texture to the presentation. They arechewy and dense, when your other cookies may be crispy and light.
- 1-1/4 cups sugar
- 5 Tbsp cocoa
- ½ cup milk
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- 1 dash salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups quick oats
- 1 cup flaked sweetened coconut
- In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, cocoa, milk, butter and salt. Heat to boiling, stirring often. When a low boil is reached, cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Remove pan from heat and quickly mix in vanilla, oats and coconut until incorporated.
- Drop by tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined cookie sheet (you will need to press a bit to hold each mound together). Let cool until set, about 5 minutes.
