No Bake Chocolate Haystack Cookies

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Shawnee TX

So good and easy to make! My siblings and I made huge batches of these cookies Sunday afternoons, and they were usually gone by Tuesday! The time for boiling the mixture is listed at 5 minutes, but if you cook it a little less, the cookies are chewier.
