  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.

Easy & delicious!! Perfect for a chocolate snack craving!! Hubby couldn’t stop eating them!! Lol

Simple to make and oh so good!

Very easy to put together. Tasty. Just what I needed for a quick sweet fix!

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.
