I did have to taste test one though (OK, two. and yes I licked out the bowl and the spoon) because I was using a new recipe. It was almost exactly like my old recipe but with a little twist: coconut--and you didn't think these things could get any better.
Here's the recipe from my friend Lois' website
Chocolate Coconut No Bake CookiesPlease tell me that coconut somehow makes these just a tiny bit more nutritious, please!
2 c. granulated sugar 1/2 c. (one stick) butter 2 squares unsweetened chocolate 3 cups oatmeal 1 cup coconut 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 c. milk Bring to a boil the sugar, margarine, milk, chocolate, and vanilla. Pour liquid mixture over dry ingredients. Mix and drop from spoon onto waxed paper covered cookie sheet. Chill for as long as you can wait. Eat.
OK, so these never quite set up properly but they were still delicious and the friends loved them. I've gotta cross reference this to my regular recipe and see what is different. I think my regular recipe has peanut butter. Hmmm . . . .
