This recipe needs to be revised. There was way too much liquid to "drop" them onto a cookie sheet. They kinda spread out instead of holding their shape. Needs more oatmeal/coconut or less butter/milk. They should also be cooled to room temperature and then refrigerated until ready to serve. Read More

this recipe brought back a lot of memories. My mom and I used to make them so often. I always added a bit more coconut. We boiled the milk butter and sugar for 2 minutes. Let it come to a good rolling boil. We stop making them like cookies and just put them in a pan 13X9 makes a thin later. Just another reason to have an extra guilt free piece. Read More

This recipe is almost identical to the one given to me by a co-worker many years ago except she used 3 cups of oatmeal. It helps to bring the mixture to a boil and boil hard for 2 minutes without stirring. They set up perfect every time. I used a 1" cookie scoop and got 67 little plops. These are a must every year for our Christmas cookie trays. They are affectionately known as 'Moose Farts' in our neck of the woods! Read More

This was quite yummy! I substituted light coconut milk for regular milk reduced the sugar by half used unsweetened coconut flakes instead of shredded coconut added extra oatmeal to make it more solid and added cardamon ground ginger cinnamon and nutmeg to taste. Very coconutty and delicious! Read More

Had a pretty good flavor but there was too much liquid. I added 1/2 cup extra coconut and 1/3 cup extra oats. After that it was good enough consistency to spoon onto the wax paper. Also I would refrigerate these rather than depend on them to cool enough to serve at room temperature. Read More

The amount of ingredients is not the problem here. As one person stated the milk/sugar/butter mixture needs to come to a rolling boil and stay that way for at least 2 minutes I boil it for 3 minutes. If they are made this way they need no refridgeration and are fudgy and delicious without being gooey and sticky. I too pour it into a pan instead of dropping it and spread it cutting into bars when cool. I prefer a smaller pan as it produces a thicker bar but 9 by 13 works fine. Read More

I agree with some of the above reviews that it seems to have a bit too much liquid also it's a bit too sweet for my taste. So I think that adding a bit extra of oats should take care of both of those things. Read More
