Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix milk, sugar, butter, and cocoa powder in a large saucepan and bring to a rolling boil. Boil, stirring frequently, for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and add oats, coconut, peanut butter, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.

  • Drop tablespoon-sized balls of cookie dough onto waxed paper and let cool in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

Store these cookies in a cool place (like the back of your refrigerator) if you don't intend to eat them right away.

It's important to let the sugar mixture boil for a little bit because otherwise the cookies can be quite "mushy" even upon refrigeration.

No coconut I have been making these for years. My mom made them 40 years ago. My brothers all make them for their families. All of us love them without coconut. Read More

11.27.21 My husband is the chocolate fan in this house, and all I could hear when he bit into the cookie was y-u-m-m-m-m-m! Hard to believe you can get this kind of chocolate flavor with just cocoa powder. And so easy to make, as well. This one’s a keeper. Read More
