20 cookies


  • ½ cup milk

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • ½ cup butter

  • ½ cup cocoa powder

  • 3 cups quick oats

  • ½ cup shredded coconut

  • ½ cup peanut butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. 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.

  2. 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.
