  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar

  • 3 cups oats
  • 5 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla

  4. Boil mixture for 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
  6. Using a spoon scoop out the desired amount of mixture and place it on the cookie sheet. The mixture will start to set in the pan, so you need to move somewhat quickly.
