Recipe by Impera_Magna

I thought for sure this recipe would be here on Zaar but I couldn't find it. My mom got this recipe from an old family friend way back in the early 1960s. It's a family favorite that I've made so many times that I don't even need to use a recipe any more... it's memorized!

Creamy and yummy! I loved the addition of evaporated milk! I added a bit extra oatmeal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, mix together sugar, butter, cocoa, milk, and salt.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium high heat and AFTER the mixture comes to a boil, cook for 2 minutes (time it).
  3. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla (be careful b/c the vanilla will make the chocolate mixture splutter a bit).
  4. Quickly stir in oats and then drop by teaspoons-full onto waxed paper covered newspaper (if you don't have newspaper, waxed paper covered baking sheet is fine).
  5. Let cool before eating, if you can.
  6. Be careful NOT to lick the spoon before the chocolate mixture cools -- you can burn your tongue. :).
