2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
3 cups uncooked oatmeal
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts


Gently boil 5 minutes (no more or less), milk, sugar and butter. Remove from heat. To the boiled mixture add: oats, coconut, cocoa, vanilla and nuts. Stir well until the mixture thickens. Drop by teaspoons (it will be sticky) onto wax paper to set up. DO NOT BAKE. These may be stored in layers separated by wax paper. They will last for months when frozen.
