YUM. I did add coconut (1 cup) and used butter instead of margarine. They set up better with butter. (let's face it, everything's better with butter) :) These are always a hit.

They never hardened, just syrupy-like and mushy. cant get them off the wax paper without falling apart.

These remind me of my childhood and it was the one thing we cooked with my dad!! However, our family called them "goat drops". I know... Disgusting, but we loved them and had no idea Dad meant droppings! My only recommendation is they are a bit on the sweet side. Hard to taste the peanut butter. I halved the sugar and added an extra 1/4 c. of peanut butter. It's perfect for us and like some of the other reviewers said, it's a very forgiving recipe on ingredients!! Thanks for sharing this. My kids love it and we now share a bit more of my history and traditions!

These turned out great! My three year old helped make them and there wasnt a lot of exact measuring involved. This recipe is very forgiving! We were both very impatient for them to cool, so I stuck them in the fridge and they turned out great!

Followed the instructions to a T but after 12 hours the cookies were not setting up. The pan of cookies went in the freezer for 3 hours and I was able to carefully peel one cookie off the parchment paper with success. Will do more research and figure out what needs to be done so this recipe can be more successful.

Great recipie! Like the other said, very forgiving. We halved the sugar and used dark chocolate instead of cocoa powder, crunchy peanut butter, butter, almond milk and regular oats instead of quick cooking... Way far off ;) Still turned out amazing! Perfect consistency, and hard not to eat them all at once!

I couldn't even get it out of the pan before it was crumbling up and falling apart.
