No Bake Chocolate Haystacks

Ok, I lied, I was going to make the Inside Out Carrot Cake, but I had an attack of nostalgia for these instead.  I used to make them as a kid during the summer.  There is a batch cooling on my kitchen counter right now.

No Bake Chocolate Haystacks

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter (or 1/2 cup margarine)
    1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup flaked coconut


1.unnamedIn a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, cocoa (I tend to go a little heavy on the cocoa) and salt.
2. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently.
3. When it has reached a rolling boil, cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
4. Remove pan from heat and mix in vanilla, oats and coconut.
5. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper.
6. Work quickly!
7. Let cool.
