In my household, these chews are commonly called "ooie-gooies" and taken from a long time family friend Elizabeth. I usually like to make a variety of the cookies you'll see on the blog and do up some fun Christmas presents with tins. Lots and lots of tins....Christmas trees, reindeers, polka dots, lights, trees, whatever Christmas themed tins you can find - get 'em while they're around and I promise that people will appreciate homemade cookies!
Also, I need to get on the ball with making some cookies for cookie exchanges with friends....and not eat them before I give them away ;)
1/2 cup butter
1 2/3 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp vanilla
Heat butter, sugar, and milk in a medium saucepan until it boils.
Remove from heat.
Stir in rolled oats, cocoa, coconut, and vanilla.
Mix ingredients until well blended. Drop by spoonful unto cookie sheet and cool in refrigerator. Can freeze for a few weeks.
