David's No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Drops

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sooz Cooks

These really easy, rich had delicious Chocolate Drops have been made by my husband pretty much for as long as we've been married. He gives them by the plateful at Christmas and everyone looks forward to them. He used to use evaporated milk but we don't usually have that on hand so he switched to regular milk. You could use either. Dont' be fooled by their apperance at first as they might look too runny, but they will set up after they sit and cool for a few minutes. I have seen variations of this with peanut butter, but these are peanut butter free.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! I've been looking for this recipe for ages. I despise the combination of chocolate and peanut butter - and lost my original recipe for these - I was becoming desperate when every recipe I found had either peanut butter or coconut and I wanted the cookies I remember from my childhood!
