No Bake Chocolate Haystack Cookies
Serves: 24 cookies
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 5 Tbsp cocoa
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup flaked sweetened coconut
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, cocoa, milk, butter and salt. Heat to low boil, stirring often. When a low boil is reached, cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  2. Remove pan from heat and quickly mix in vanilla, oats and coconut until incorporated.
  3. 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.
If you don't like coconut, you can substitute ½ cup butter + ½ cup nut butter. Stead of Haystacks, you now have No-Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal cookies!
