No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Cookies

win_20161202_165101My mother makes these delightful bites of holiday goodness every December… they are a Christmastime comfort food here at Crowded Earth Kitchen. There is no flour in these cookies, making them perfect for friends who eat mostly paleo but are still game for an occasional cheat. No-bake cookies are also perfect for those inevitable occasions when school-age children announce “Tomorrow’s the day I have to bring treats for ____. Sorry I forgot to tell you!”

Ingredients (Makes 3 dozen)

1   6 oz. pkg. of semi sweet chocolate chips

l/3 cup butter

16 large marshmallows

l/2 teas vanilla

1 cup coconut

2 cups rolled quick oats

Super Easy Directions

Melt butter, chocolate and marshmallows in large pot over medium low heat.  Stir occasionally.  Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients.  With buttered hands, roll into balls.  Place on waxed paper lined pan and chill.

That’s all there is to it! Enjoy your cookies, and don’t forget your charity cookbooks for holiday gift giving!
