No Bake Brown Blobs

Ok so the title isn't that appealing, my husband referred to them as chocolate macaroons, but my mom always called them brown blobs when I was growing up so we're going with that... :)

1½ cup sugar
½ cup   cocoa powder
½ cup   butter
½ cup   milk
3 cups  quick cooking oats
1 cup    unsweetened coconut

In a heavy saucepan over medium heat combine sugar, cocoa powder, milk and butter. Bring to a rolling boil, and maintain boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat, add oats and coconut and mix until combined.
Spoon on to parchment lined cookie sheet, and transfer to fridge to cool until firm.
And there you have it. Another delicious Christmas treat! This is day 2 of the Christmas Cookie Countdown! More delicious treats to come :)


  1. We do these minus the coconut I think and we just call them No-Bakes! Haha. But when I was growing up my whole family called them Gorilla Poops! Haha. So gross but I love those cookies!

  2. I love these cookies and my mom used to make these a lot when I was little. I'm making some tonight to go with some cocoa and knitting!


Thanks so much for spending some time with me, if you're feeling up to it please leave me a note. I really enjoy them, and take the time to read every single one! :)
