This recipe is great for holidays or any other day. It’s easy and fun to make, and the little ones will go crazy for them; I know we do.

Project Steps

First, you add both the oatmeal and coconut together in a large mixing bowl, and set aside.

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.

Add your pot of dissolved ingredients to your large mixing bowl of dry ingredients of oatmeal and coconut. Mix, mush, and fold until it’s thoroughly mixed.

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 appétit!
