Can't Quit Eating These.....

No-Bake Heavenly Cookies
Makes 2 dozen

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
3 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup shaved almonds
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 Tbsp cocoa

In a saucepan over medium high heat, melt the butter and milk. Stir in sugar. In a large bowl, combine oatmeal, coconut, almonds, extract and cocoa. Bring the milk, butter, and sugar to a rolling boil. Pour over oatmeal mixture and drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. The cookies will harden as they cool, however, sticking them in the fridge or freezer expedites that process:) which is, for me, a good thing! ha ha. Good luck keeping your hands off just one!

Holy heavens these are my favorite things in the entire world. And despite knowing how much sugar and butter go into them, I can never stop eating them. Ahh... now I need to go make some. Thanks a lot!
