  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until sugar dissolves, about 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, oats, coconut, and vanilla extract. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place on waxed paper. Let cool until hardened.


  • Editor's Notes:
  • Denise's Tip: Start timing when mixture reaches a full rolling boil; this is the trick to successful cookies! If you boil too long the cookies will be dry and crumbly. If you don't boil long enough, the cookies won't form properly.

Delicious! I substituted Splenda for the sugar and I didn't put as much butter - only about 1.5 tbsp. I added honey to help it stay together and let them sit overnight. Only yields about 15 coo...

Having a problem getting them to harden properly... even stuck them in the fridge hoping to give them a hand. I was thinking maybe I used the wrong peanut butter? Ive heard that the natural pean...

These were really sweet! I am not sure these can really be called healthy with all of the sugar. I remember the regular version from when I was a kid, but didn't compare. These haven't set up ye...
