  1. This recipe is almost identical to the one given to me by a co-worker many years ago, except she used 3 cups of oatmeal. It helps to bring the mixture to a boil, and boil hard for 2 minutes without stirring. They set up perfect every time. I used a 1" cookie scoop and got - Read more ...
  2. The amount of ingredients is not the problem here. As one person stated the milk/sugar/butter mixture needs to come to a rolling boil and stay that way for at least 2 minutes I boil it for 3 minutes. If they are made this way they need no refridgeration and are fudgy and delicious without being - Read more ...
  3. My recipe I used for years is exactly the same but calls for 3 cups of rolled oats
  4. I agree with some of the above reviews that it seems to have a bit too much liquid also it's a bit too sweet for my taste. So I think that adding a bit extra of oats should take care of both of those things.

  8. we used 1.5 cups of chocolate chips instead of cocoa, turned out great!! with a much more chocolate taste!!
  9. Had a pretty good flavor but there was too much liquid. I added 1/2 cup extra coconut and 1/3 cup extra oats. After that it was good enough consistency to spoon onto the wax paper. Also I would refrigerate these rather than depend on them to cool enough to serve at room temperature.
