these are the ones i have been looking for/ the only diff is that i think my neihbor used condensed milk...but that could be a childs memory. very nice, thanks so much for posting them
good for kids
So you finally got me to join recipezaar! I am going to rate these since I've only made them about a hundred times since you gave me the recipe. These are perfect chocolatey bunches of coconut goodness. Less than a perfect 5- I think not.
I have been looking for this recipe for ever its the one I use to make years ago. Thanks and it is very good. Jamie
These cookies were unblievably easy to make. Cooking them took only a few minutes. The majority of the time was scooping them onto cookie sheets. I would estimate the active cooking time, due to the scooping, at 45 minutes. While the milk, sugar & butter was heating up in a 4 qt pot, I put everything else together into a bowl and just dumped it all in together when it was done boiling. I may have made mine small, but since they are so rich I prefer them that way, and got 86 cookies...it took two cookie sheets & a pizza pan to spread them out. Even though they taste great, I'm giving them 3 stars because I let them set up in the fridge overnight, and they are still sticky. I can get them off the cookie sheets with a spatula, but I'm worried that they will be a sticky mess when they are sitting on a cookie tray for several hours during the cocktail party that I made them for. I plan to freeze them and defrost just before the party, and maybe that will help. They do taste good though!
