No Bake Cocoa Cookie
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup milk
3 Tbs. cocoa
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
This is all you will need! (I doubled my recipe for this picture, that is why there are 2 sticks of butter.)
In a medium sauce pan, combine butter, milk, cocoa, and sugar. Mix over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Continue to stir for 5 minutes while it is boiling.
Take the pan off the heat, add vanilla and mix in, then add oatmeal. Mix till combined.
On and ungreased cookie sheet, drop a spoonful of the mixture onto the pan. The cookie should keep its form and the chocolate and oatmeal should stay together. If the dough spreads, you will need to keep the mixture on boil for another minute or so. Get them onto the cookie sheet as quickly as you can, sometimes they harden in the pan!
This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies - perfect to be goobled up in a day!
