I really enjoy participating in blog carnivals, so I decided to go through my list of Top Ten tried and true recipes. Actually, 2 of my favorites, Jerri's Brownie Recipe and Texas Cake have already been posted on this blog. So here is #3, my personal favorite:
NO BAKE COOKIES
Combine in a heavy 4 qt. saucepan:
3 C sugar
2/3 C butter (use real butter - it's worth it!)
1/2 C cocoa
1 C evaporated milk
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then boil for 2 minutes. Take off the heat.
Stir in until melted:
2/3 C peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
Add to above mixture:
1 C coconut
4 C quick oats
Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper or aluminum foil. These cookies will harden after about 15 minutes. If the weather is very humid, they don't harden as well, so don't use these as something to make on rainy days! I make them at Christmas time, but I love them in summer, too!
For more great recipes, head on over to the blog party, that Southwestern Soup that Kim is featuring looks yum!
