A no-bake treat that literally takes 10 minutes prep time.
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 cups white sugar (I often use less)
4 tbsp cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
3 cups oatmeal (not the one minute kind)
1 cup shredded coconut
Combine butter, sugar, cocoa, vanilla and milk in a large saucepan on medium heat. Keep stirring so it doesn't burn to the pot. Bring to a slow boil and remove from heat.
Add oatmeal and coconut and stir together til well blended
Drop by tablespoons on to parchment paper or wax paper and refrigerate to harden.
