Next, bring out your pot and add your milk (or condensed, your preference), butter (or margarine), and your sugar. For ours we used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 cup white sugar.

Add your cocoa, then put on stove, on low heat (DO NOT BOIL). Whisk or stir until the mixture becomes smooth so all the sugar and cocoa has dissolved.

  • Lastly, you will want to spoon your mixture into bite-sized cookies. I used 2 teaspoons cupped together to form the style and shape of cookie I wanted. Then place them on a cookie sheet with wax paper on it so they won't stick to the pan (everyone hates doing dishes). Now you let them set. I like to put them in the fridge overnight for best results.
  • Enjoy! Bon app├ętit!
