  1. Combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until sugar dissolves, about 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, oats, coconut, and vanilla extract. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place on waxed paper. Let cool until hardened.

  • Editor's Notes:
  • Denise's Tip: Start timing when mixture reaches a full rolling boil; this is the trick to successful cookies! If you boil too long the cookies will be dry and crumbly. If you don't boil long enough, the cookies won't form properly.

Having a problem getting them to harden properly... even stuck them in the fridge hoping to give them a hand. I was thinking maybe I used the wrong peanut butter? Ive heard that the natural peanut butter is no good for some recipes, so could this be one of them? The mixture tastes great. Just more like sticky goo than actual cookies. -_-

It flies in the face of the recipe name...but we added mini marshmallows before rolling. The kids loved them!

I have made these twice now. The first time they didn't set up like I had hoped for. This time, I boiled the sugar, milk, butter and cocoa for about 2 minutes. When I added the oatmeal, I used rounded cups vs leveled cups (to make sure they set up this time). I also used coconut extract instead of vanilla. They turned out wonderful!

Delicious! I substituted Splenda for the sugar and I didn't put as much butter - only about 1.5 tbsp. I added honey to help it stay together and let them sit overnight. Only yields about 15 cookies though.
