When I was in high school the cafeteria employees would make these and I would buy them all the time. One day I asked one of the employees if they would mind giving me the recipe since I ate them so much and would love to save my money. :) She was kind enough to give me the recipe, and to this day my family and friends cannot get enough of them. It is requried of me to make them anytime they come over. I hope you enjoy these as much as my family and friends have.

Gosh, I was heartbroken when I made these cookies. I was so pysched about the chocolate and coconut combo, but they were not that great. The coconut got totally lost. I feel the texture of it, but could not taste it. I also thought they were way too sweet. I am a huge fan of the choco/p-nut butter/oatmeal no bakes and have made hundreds of them over the years. I think I will stick that recipe. I am happy that everyone else really enjoyed them. Also, the recipe didn't even make that many cookies. I do make them pretty big, size of a half dollar or so. Thanks! Later this evening: My hubby came home and tried them. He liked them alot and suggested some pecans or almonds next time. He thought they would then taste like a German Chocolate cookie. I will make them again, but I will cut the sugar back by a 1/4 cup or possibly even more. Thanks! Give them a try. You might like them.
My Grandma used to make these exact cookies. They are so good - and bring back such lovely memories!
I have been making these for years. They are really good and so easy.
