Coconut Birds - A 10 Minute Miracle

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.

Voila! StumbleUpon
