Combine margarine, sugar, and milk in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Add cocoa, and rolled oats and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add a pinch of salt, vanilla, and coconut. Mix together well. Spoon tablespoon size amounts of mixture onto wax paper. Continue until mixture is gone. Refrigerate.
