Comment on this recipe

I use Hershey's cocoa. These are great to make during hot weather. My grandchildren just devour these.

Ingredients

3 cups Quaker quick oatmeal
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup coconut
2 cups white sugar
5 tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine or butter

Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, combine the oatmeal, nuts and coconut. Mix well. In a 2-quart saucepan, combine the sugar, cocoa, vanilla, milk and margarine. Mix together well. Cook on medium heat until margarine melts and mixture comes to a full rolling boil. Let mixture boil for 1-1/2 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over the dry ingredients, blending well. Spread out a long sheet of wax paper. Using two teaspoons, shape batter into desired cookie shape. Let dry. Stores well and can be frozen.
