2 c. White sugar

1/2 c. Milk

1/2 c. Shortening or butter

1 tsp. Vanilla

2 T. Cocoa (we use more)


Instant coffee granules (for mocha flavor)

Mint (dried & powdered or extract)

Stir as it melts together. Boil for 3+ minutes, remove from heat & in add:

3 c. Oatmeal

1 c. Long shredded coconut (double for short shredded coconut)

Mix well. It will be hot. Drop by teaspoonful on waxed paper or parchment. The cookies will set fairly quickly. Work quickly. Enjoy.

If they don't set properly, the hot mixture didn't boil long enough.

I have also posted a snack mix recipe on the forum using similar ingredients. It's tasty as well.
