No Bake Cookies...

Nothing cures sick kids faster than chocolate!  My mom used to make these fast and easy treats for my brother and me when we were kids.  She made them with her mom and I'm sure this recipe goes back all the way to the Mayans and Aztecs who used the cacao seeds as offerings to the gods!  O.k. maybe not that far back, but I'm sure it goes back at least a few generations.

A little lovin' from Grandma's dog doesn't hurt either!

Chocolate No Bake Cookies::
2c. sugar
1/2c. cocoa powder
1 stick butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2c. quick oats
1c. coconut

Bring sugar, cocoa, butter, and vanilla to a boil for 1 minute.  Add vanilla, oats, and coconut.  Drop on cookie sheet and chill for 1 hour.

  5. our family recipe for these is 2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup milk,1 stick butter, 4 Tbsp Cocoa, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 2 1/4 cups quick oats, 1 tsp vanilla. Heat first 4 ingredients to a boil, boil for 90 seconds, remove from heat. Stir in remaining ingredients, drop by spoonful on wax paper, allow to cool if you can wait that long. Store any remaining in airtight container.

    I may have to try it with the coconut.
