No-Bake Haystack Cookies {Revisited}

Today, I have for you a recipe that I've posted before. 
Like a few of my other early recipe posts, the photos were less than stellar or even appetizing.

I'm working on re-takes for those recipe items. 

My most recent recipe retake projects were these delicious, unbaked chocolate cookies, called Haystacks.

You can whip them up in a few minutes, chill them to set & have them ready to serve in hardly any time flat!

Haystacks   {Print Recipe}
makes 15

3 cups oats
1 cup coconut (long, not fine)
6 tsp. cocoa
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
2 cups brown sugar (loose, don't pack)
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix first 3 ingredients well.

Heat butter, brown sugar, & milk in a pot. Take it off the heat when it just starts to bubble. Or, if you're careful, you can do this step in the microwave. Be careful though, it can easily boil over. Stir often & watch closely.

Add vanilla & pour into the first mixture. Stir well. Drop by spoonful onto waxed or parchment paper. Freeze for 15 minutes. Remove & place into a container. Store in the refrigerator.
