No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Shared by: Bev

When we were growing up, we nicknamed this cookie after a childhood friend. 'David Ward' cookies.


2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup sweetened coconut


1. Gather ingredients
2. Line baking sheets with waxed paper or parchment paper and set aside.
3. In a large saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, unsalted butter, milk, cocoa powder, and salt.
4. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Continue to boil for three minutes.
5. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the oats and coconut.
6. Drop by tablespoonfuls on to the prepared baking sheets. Pressing down lightly to form the cookie shape. The cookies will harden at room temperature after about 30 minutes, or they can be placed in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to firm. Once set, enjoy!
