Holiday Recipe: Chocolate Mud Pie cookies (unbaked cookies)

This is one of the oldest cookie recipes I can remember making . Because it doesn’t require the use of the oven, it was one that when I was old enough to use the stove, I was more than happy to do.  They are tasty and simple and perfect for holiday sharing!

Unbaked Cookies


2 cups sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup cocoa

3 cups quick oats

1 cup shredded coconut


1-In a pot, melt sugar, butter and vanilla together.

2-Stir in milk and cocoa until well blended.

3-Add oats and coconut. Stir well.

4-Scope each cookie (the size you desire) and spoon onto parchmant paper, wax paper or foil.  Allow to harden.

 ETA: Because of the use of milk, refrigerate these cookies or freeze them, if they last long enough!
