Poop cookies you may be asking, have you gone crazy?! Well, that is just foolish because I am, of course crazy, just ask my husband and children, they would be the first to tell you so.  But no, this is what my family called no-bake cookies when I was growing up, I don’t know why, we just did, and I continue to call them that. Some people call them “moose poop” or “bear poop” cookies as well. Let’s enjoy a snack today.

No bake cookies are the perfect summer cookie.

I know this recipe by heart. I loved getting to help make them, sitting on the counter next to the stove stirring the huge pot as a child. Amazing memories made over delicious chocolate cookies.

These are the kind memories that I hope to give to my three kids. Plus, these are great cookies for your kids to make as they are learning to cook, as they don’t have to use the oven at all.

How to make No Bake Cookies:

Start by melting the butter/margarine in a large pot. I tend to use a large stockpot so I don’t have to worry about containing the cookie batter as I stir other ingredients in later on.

As your sugar melts completely add in the milk, the sugar, and the cocoa.

Mix well and then stir occasionally until it starts to boil. Make sure that you get your cocoa broken up and mixed in well. You really don’t want to bit into a clump of cocoa later on in your cookie. A whisk works well for this.

Once it comes to a boil, remove from heat, and mix in the remaining ingredients: oatmeal and coconut.

Line a couple of cookie sheets in either wax paper or parchment paper. Drop spoonful’s onto the cookie sheets.

Refrigerate. It takes about 30 minutes or so to set before you can start enjoying them. We leave ours in the fridge to keep them cold for a cool treat.

You do not have to leave these in the fridge after they have set, they are great for taking on a picnic too. But I like to keep them hard and cold for a hot summer day cool treat.

They are also a nice little treat at a holiday party. For both kids and adults. These cookies are one of my most favorites and I don’t make them often because I will eat them all!
