This is your classic no bake cookie recipe with a few tweaks. I based this one of a recipe from the Mr's childhood. First melt 1/2 cup butter or margarine. Do this in a medium size pot on med-high heat. Make sure to stir it and don't let it burn.
Add 2 cups sugar, 2/3 cup milk and 2 tbsps cocoa and keep stirring until it boils.
When it boils pull it off the heat for about 5 minutes and then pour in 1 cup coconut and 4 cups rolled oats. Then lay out some wax paper and put the mix on the wax paper with a tbsp. The Mr likes to eat these before they cool in a bowl with milk. The kiddies and I enjoy them the next day in cookie form. You can freeze these really well.
