Peanut-Free Chocolate Macaroons

Recipe by  

"Peanut-free! These no-bake chocolate macaroons are also known as 'Frogs and Haystacks.' My mother has been making these since before I was born; she passed this down to me. There are many no-bake cookies out there, but I like these best. Store in an airtight container in a cool spot. These can be frozen."

  1. Line a work surface with waxed paper.
  2. Stir oats, cocoa powder, and coconut together in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk sugar, milk, and butter together in a nonstick pot; bring to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, until sugar is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir vanilla extract into butter mixture.
  4. Stir oat mixture into butter mixture until well-combined. Drop mixture by the spoonful onto waxed paper and let sit until set, at least 15 minutes.

  • Cook's Note:
  • Lay out your waxed paper beforehand; these cookies come together very quickly! You will want to get them portioned out fast before they set-up. I use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, and it goes quickly.
