Really good! I know the recipe by heart!

You won't have problems with these being too gooey if you allow them to boil for approximately 2.5 minutes. I didn't stir during boiling time. For variation these are good with dry roasted peanuts and raisins, too. Yummy treat, Diana, thanks.Read More
I thought adding 3 cups of rolled oats would make it really chewy, so I added 2 cups of quick oats and 1 cup of rolled oats: I'm glad I did! I also added a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter, because I didn't have quite enough cocoa powder.Read More

I made these alot when I was a kid. To make things even faster we would spead out 4 or 5 sheets of wax paper and put and put 1/4 or more on each paper and roll them into logs. We would put them into the fridge right away and they would set quickly. After a few hours you unroll the log and cut into pieces. My kids love them because they are so easy for them to make and eat.
I love these cookies. I made 1-1/2 batches yesterday afternoon and they are already gone. (I'm not going to tell you who ate them all *smile*). I didnt' even bother making these into cookies...it was eaten right out of the pan. I didn't add the coconut because I didn't have any. And when I do have chopped pecans, I like to throw a handful of them in. Diana...I too know this recipe by heart since I make these so much. Thanks for your submission. OH..and I do add a spoonful of Peanut Butter. :)
I have made this same recipe for years! The only exception being without the coconut. My family love them! I always run out too quickly. They are so easy that my husband will even make them! He even taught me that if you don't want them to be so gooy, cook them for one full minute once they start come to a full boil. This makes all the difference! But be sure to drop them onto wax paper quickly, they will set up much quicker by doing this.
These were fun, easy and yummy. However I did change the recipe quite a bit. Instead of milk I used coconut milk, instead of butter i used coconut oil. I also used WAY less sugar and added cinnamon at the end. I also added raisins. I can't be bothered to measure with recipes like this so i encourage you all to use this as a template and I'm excited to see what other cooks come up with. Enjoy!
Wow... I had no oats... I used "Quaker Kids' Oatmeal" I wasn't sure how it would turn out but it tasted great, just like my mom used to make!! This is very kid friendly and my son helped me from beginning to end. It was really fun because the Oatmeal had "Hatching Dino eggs" so there were tiny colourful dinosaurs through them.. and when we were done we put a "Smartie" on top of each one!! What great tasting quality time we had!! This will be a regular treat in my house.. thanks so much!
I used 1&1/2 cups oats added 1/2 cup chopped pecans. I also added 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. To try for a low calorie treat I used skim milk, splenda, 1/2 stick butter and 1/3 cup smuckers oil/shortening substitute.I made these many years ago when my mom thought I was too young to use the oven. It has a little different texture with all the diet substitutes but they still got firm and helped my sweet tooth. thanks Diana!!
We made these when we were kids - my Mom called them Hot Rods (because they go so fast) and my husband called them Frogs (because they looked like one). Only difference is that my recipe calls to boil and stir for 5 minutes - makes all the difference in consistency. Enjoy.
YUMMMY!!!!!!!! I stuck to the recipe exactly except for using 1/4 cup of margarine and a 1/4 of peanut butter. Delish!! (and SO EASY!)
Easy and tasty! I modified a little and used coconut oil instead of butter, 2 cups of Bob's Red Mill Natural granola and 1 cup oats. The sweetness in the granola led to only adding 3/4 c brown sugar (instead of white). Also the granola adds a crunch to it all. Finally, I added 1 lidfull of vanilla- turned out great! Thanks!
It is hard to find a cookie in the house that everyone likes and these are it! They are quick, easy and very satisfying!
Was good, should add more oatmeal though to make em stick together better
These have a great fudgy taste & are EXTREMELY quick to make (I made them while my 7 month old napped!).
real easy, real good! can't imagine it without the coconut. and if you use coconut, the sugar could probably be reduced big time. a little bit too sweet.
This is not the type of recipe that can ever really earn 5 stars - has nothing to do with the cook, it's just that there is not enough ooey gooey to it. It borders on the verge of health food for me - it's one of those recipes that kids need to make to introduce them to cooking, or one that you make when you have that can of cocoa still sitting on the shelf and need something to do with it.
These were OK. They're better if you add 3/4 C Jiff Peanut Butter,then boil for 1 minute.
I thought adding 3 cups of rolled oats would make it really chewy, so I added 2 cups of quick oats and 1 cup of rolled oats: I'm glad I did! I also added a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter, because I didn't have quite enough cocoa powder.
Quick and easy, but not the best
LOVE LOVE LOVE these! So easy!
We made these with Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa - so good!
I made this for mothers day, and my mom loved it!Its a tad too sugary,and the mix at the bottom of the pan was crumbly.Overall,will make again.
Yum! I thought these woulld have a little more crisp for some reason. I think I'll try Rice Crispies instead of oatmeal, just to see if I can get that slight crunch. Had great flavor!
Love these....it is imperative that you boil the mixture for at least 3 minutes...I didn't the first time and they didn't set up at all...
Perfect. Chocolate gooey goodness. Fast to make and everybody loved them. I added a bit more coconut and a tiny splash of vanilla. :)
I made these at school with my grade 4 students and it was great fun. These simple, no bake treats are perfect for a no-fuss cooking class.
Good, quick, easy...
extremely quick and easy to make. I ended up making 2 batches (one for myself). The only thing i didnt like was it was a bit too oily.
This recipe is great! It's easy to make and the cookies are always a huge hit. Even my fiance, who hates coconut, loves these cookies.
First recipe on this site I haven't had to modify ;) Thanks so much Diana! They're just like my grandma used to make.
These are good, not superb. Definitely quick and easy and great to make with kids. They should be called a macaroon since they're very gooey and super moist. **UPDATE** Yikes, I originally gave this 4 stars, but after tasting it the morning after, I will have to change it to 2 stars - at best! After it sits overnight, they get hard and grainy in texture. Awful to eat, This is definitely something you eat the day you make it or else the texture the next day is terrible: hard, sugary and grainy. Will not make again.
Yummy! These were very good cookies, filled with great taste combonations. Just make sure to cool long enough.
These are sooo delicious. We made them for a church cookie exchange. It took us about 30 minutes to make 60. I would make these again. One of my new favourites!
easy peasy and my son loved helping out to make these! In fact, he's asked to make more.
This recipe is just OK. I love the bold chocolate flavor, but mine never set. I ended up putting them in the freezer, but they melded together when warm. I am going to play around with the recipe to see what works.
Can't beat these for a quick and easy treat to satisfy a chocolate sweet tooth! I guess I was in a hurry and ate some too soon as the oatmeal was dry & chewy and they didn't hold together well. Keeping them in the refrigerator overnight seemed to be the solution to that problem... Instead of coconut I used raisins. mmmm-chocolate covered raisins
Kids and husband agree - only three stars! Oats are too chewy even when I used 2 cups of quick cook oats and 1 cup rolled oats. The coconut made these very sweet- too much even for my sweet tooth husband! Next time I try this I will use only quick cook oats, 1/2 the coconut and add peanut butter to help the texture and cut the sweetness. Good overall concept though.
We made this recipes all the time when we were kids, it's my personal favorite for quick, easy and delicious.
I substituted 3/4 c oats with 1 c rice puffs (they bind the mixture less well). Recipe doubles well!
Very good easy recipe!
Oh so yummy! This is a great variation from the way I usually make these(off the Hershey cocoa can). I reduced oats to 2 cups, and doubled the coconut. Very easy and very yummy. In my eagerness to get these to set ASAP, I put them in the freezer. Then, I forgot I put them there. What a mess! Do not do this unless you want to pick wax paper off your cookies.
I added a tsp of vanilla. In order to save a few calories, I used 1/3 cup butter and they were still yummy and a nice change from the peanut butter oatmeal no-bakes I usually make. The coconut added a nice touch. Thanks!
So yummy, sweet and a nice treat that is easy to make. I appreciate that there is no peanut butter as is the case with most no-bake cookies. I was able to send them with my son for a camp bake sale. Thanks!
Just like the cookies I used to have as a child. I like to freeze them and eat them cold. whenever I make them they don't last at all because everyone eats them so fast.
Love it! Same as my mom used to make when I was a kid. I don't use coconut but I do add a bit of vanilla extract (I think I add that to everything I bake though)...Delicious and fast!
Quick and easy to make. Tastes good but a bit on the rich side. Can't each much but kids will love them.
Just like my sister and I made as kids. I added some butterscotch chips to half of the mix since my husband doesn't like chocolate as much as I do. Love it!
These turned out so well. I had these ingredients on hand and saw this recipe and decided to make them. I didn't have any rolled oats so i used 2 packs of instant apple cinnamon oatmeal and one pack of maple & brown sugar oatmeal. It turned out to be a little less than 3 cups total. I did everything else as followed and they turned out great! My three year old son just has a blast making them, we will def be making these again soon. Thanks Diana!
Easy and super yummy!
Really easy, really quick, and really good! I found that they tasted better after being refrigerated overnight. Also, I used more coconut than oatmeal since I was running short and they were still good.
Loved it, the best cookies ever!!!
I had a craving for chocolate, and only cocoa on hand. I made this up and it was quick and super-chocolatey-- just perfect.
I love this recipe. Nice and easy to make and has the benefit of being gluten free so it's great to take to parties. I've used both sweetened and unsweetened coconut and I would much recommend the unsweetened coconut. But the coconut is a must for me.
This is a very good recipe for throwing together something quickly when I have those chocolate cravings. I read a review that stated it was too gooey. When in doubt, add walnuts (or pecans, dried fruit, peanuts, more oats, etc.)! I added about 1.5 cups to make it more of a treat/snack than a cookie. Also, since I'm a die hard chocolate fan, I typically add an extra pinch of cocoa. I sprayed a cake pan and allowed the mixture to set in the freezer for an hour. When I took it out and taste tested it, it was very rich and sweet! Instead of normal sized cookies I diced it up into one inch squares. The cake pan allows them to set into a pretty shape rather than spooning them. They are pretty hard to resist. Thank you for this recipe, it's definitely a keeper!
I love these, (we called them Moose Dropings) reminds me when I was a little and my Aunt Marg used to make them...
Delicious! I added 1 tsp peppermint extract. Very chocolately and yummy. It was a little sticky, though
I make this all the time. The kids love it and the adults love it when I take them to get togethers.
kids loved these, VERY sweet treats.
They have a good flavor but I did'nt care to much for the texture it was to gooey.
Turned out absolutely perfect!
Just like I remember from when I was young
My family didn't care for these. I ended up throwing them in the disposal.
I had to make a tweak since I didn't have plain oatmeal. I had a box of Maple Brown Sugar packets and used 6 of them with only one cup of sugar. The rest of the recipe was the same and they turned out wonderful! Thanks for the great recipe!
Nice and easy when you have a sweet tooth for chocolate!!
These were really good. I didnt have coconut, so I left that out. but I did add a tsp of vanilla, thanks for the recipe
The easiest cookies ever. My mom used to make something like this when I was a kid, so I thought I would give it a try one night when we wanted cookies but didn't have any chocolate chips. This is now my wife's favorite cookie! We have tried them with and without coconut. I think both are great, although I think the coconut improves the consistency.
I grew up making these, they are so wonderful! These cookies were actually one of my first 4-H fair projects as a kid, and I was so glad to "re-find" the recipe on here! I added two spoonfuls of peanut butter (just how I made them as a kid) and it really adds a great flavor!
I will not make them again anytime soon, because they were delicious and I ate them much too quickly. They tasted just fine frozen.
Extremely fast and easy. Would recommend doubling the coconut.
Super easy and super sweet.
This recipe was a little too sweet for my taste but my roommate loved it!
i love this one. i try it and me and my sis lurve it very much.but my mom doesnt like it,she says its too sweet.i even add chopped nuts, and its twice as good!
awesome with coconut and pecans!
So easy! So good! I sell a lot of these to the children that come in. Thanks! :-))))) A+++++
I might have rated this better if it wasn't stolen from the side of the cocoa container. They are good, but not so original.
Yes to chocolately, yes to quick - no to texture, no to flavor. I prefer the bake in the oven cookies. I'd rather clean a cookie sheet than a pot too.
These taste great. I actually like them better without the coconut...probably because that's how my mom always made them. Thank you for a great recipe!
We have made these for years. One thing about the boil time. Depending a little on your humidity, but somewhere between 1.5-3 minutes is good.
When it comes to a full rolling boil you really have to cook it for at the very least two minutes. Three is a little more like it. If you only cook it for one minute you will have sticky cookies not fudge like cookies
These cookies were great and easy to make. My daughter helped all the way through. I doubled the recipe and then added an extra cup of coconut. These are great and I'll definitely make them again.
If you let them set up long enough, they aren't gooey. Also, they taste like fudge with some oats thrown in. I think they are great!
Absolutely fantastic!!!Tastes like candy!!!
This was my first time making no bake cookies. They were very tasty and I would make them again but I thought they were not as good as baked cookies. This recipe is great for summertime when you don’t want to turn on the oven.
awesome recipe. I have also made it with walnuts and my employees loved it and asked for more this Christmas Party.
Great, quick and easy solution to a chocolate craving. Will keep in mind for next time.
Didn't work at all. Would not set up and flattened out.
I love this recipe. If you want a little more than just chocolate i would recommend adding frappe coffe mix. When i substitute the mix for the cocoa i like to add heath toffe pieces it is AMAZING!
These did not work out at all. They becamse this hard bran-ish consistency. The taste wasn't bad, but it was more sugary than anything. I won't make them again.
Just like moms.
Excellent! Just like I remember them!
These are yummy, I shouldnt have made them since Im on a diet. I had no problem with them at all, I would just use more coconut next time.
I can't stop eating these cookies!! They are so good!
I was worried at first about them being too gooey but once they had sufficient time to cool/form in the fridge, they were great!
