Quick chocolate-oatmeal drops. A classic!

Makes about 36

1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup flaked coconut
3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats

Line two baking sheets with waxed paper. In a large saucepan, stir together cocoa, sugar, milk and butter. Boil for 5 minutes, then remove from heat. (Note: boiling time is CRUCIAL...too long and they will turn out dry and crumbly. Not long enough, and they won't set up at all.) Stir in vanilla extract, coconut and oats. Combine well. Drop by tablespoonfulls onto prepared cookie sheets. Refrigerate 1 hour or until set. Keep refrigerated. Makes 3-4 dozen cookies.

We make these every year. One year our oven broke right before Christmas so we made these(because kids need cookies at Christmas), I thought a great name for the season would be reindeer poop and my kids loved. These cookies will always be reindeer poop to us and every year my kids still ask for them. 5 stars

I make these every year by request. Never had an issue with them. If they don't set up right then it wasnt boiled long enough. This recipe has to be exactly as stated. 5 stars
