No Bake Cookies

I have no idea why blogger is posting this sideways, arrgh!

My husband and I enjoy these cookies as a late night indulgence, usually after we've both thrown our never-ending diets out the window! Sometimes we got as far as to not even shape them into cookies, just a bowl and a spoon! They are warm, easy to make and delicious: aka, a great way to cheat on your diet!

No Bake Cookies

Borrowed from Irma Green's family recipe book (mom-in-law!)


2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup margarine
3 tbsp cocoa
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup coconut, if desired (I do, Glenn doesn't-sigh)
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt


Combine sugar, milk, butter, cocoa, and salt in saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Cook about 2 minutes or to softball stage. Remove from heat adn add remaining ingredients. Drop from teaspoon onto waxed paper. Cool and serve.

My favorite cookies of all time! I, too, will eat straight from the pan. Mmmm ... I think no bake cookies are in my near future!

These look super yummy! I think I have had something like them before, and they were great.
