My friend Julie sent me this recipe. I just love the name Frogs, how cute. It is a cookie (sort of a no-bake cookie). But since her dad calls them Frogs, then we too shall call them Frogs! Julie and I went to high school together….a while back…in the 80’s! We survived, and thanks to the power of Facebook we have now reconnected…oh! Mark Zuckerberg such magic you provide for us! 😉
I love cookies…homemade cookies. I am not a fan of store bought anything, especially cookies. So when Julie sent me this recipe, I was actually excited to try them, because the “technique” is different. I did a happy little dance…not pretty!
2 cups white sugar (I only use 1 cup but it’s up to you how much you want to use!)
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
6 tbsp cocoa
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup coconut flakes
Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil. Add oats and coconut flakes. Mix thoroughly. Drop spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper (spacing is not important; you won’t be baking them!). Place in refrigerator for about 1 hour to set. Enjoy!
HOW EASY IS THAT? I love it.
Here are my lovely cookies, before they were sent to cool down:
And after the big chill:
Thanks Julie, and thanks Julie’s Dad! 🙂 DELICIOUS!
