Another favourite recipe around here (especially at Christmas time) is No Bake Cookies. These are easier to make than Christmas Crack . All you need is:
2 Cups granulated sugar
1/2 Cup butter or margarine
1/2 Cup milk
1/2 cup of cocoa, sifted if lumpy
1.5 Cups quick-cooking oats
1 Cup unsweetened coconut.
It’s an easy recipe to put together. Combine the first 4 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil on medium heat. Once it boils, reduce the heat to medium low and let simmer for 5 minutes. Stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Add the rolled oats and coconut. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes and drop by tablespoon onto a waxed lined cookie sheet. I set these out in my garage in the winter to set for about an hour. Then I freeze them or store in the fridge. How long? I have no idea how long these will store for because they never last long around here. I’m lucky if they will make it to Christmas.
Another treat you won’t be able to stop after one! Enjoy.
