No Bake Cookies

I can’t believe that it is September, already! WOW, was this the fastest summer ever or what?
Since my niece starts back to school today I thought I would make an after school snack for her, even though she lives 2 provinces away!

My mom used to make these cookies for us sometimes. I loved them then, I love them now.
They are super easy and totally yummy!

What you need,

2 cups granulated sugar
½ cup butter
½ cup milk, I used 1% it is what I had
½ cup coco powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups quick cook oats
1 cup flaked coconut

In a large pot over medium heat, combine the sugar, butter, milk and coco powder.  Stirring often bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla, oats and coconut.  Return the pot to the heat and continue to cook, stirring the whole time for another 2 minutes.

Drop the mixture by the tablespoonful onto a wax paper lined baking sheet. Let the cookies cool completely.

You can store the cookies in an airtight container for up to a week.

These cookies are so rich and chocolaty.

They are the perfect after school or after work snack!


Recipe from my Momma!
