This recipe was given to me by my aunt who called them "Cookie Candy". I've also heard them called "Cow Patties". They are delicious. I've made them for over 30 years. Sometimes I've added coconut or pecans for variation. Recommend these to everyone!

Thank, Leslie, for posting this recipe. I misplaced mine. It's just in time for Christmas!

I hope you enjoy the coconut as much as I do! Now I'm craving them in any form! Have a great Christmas! Blessings to you and your family . . . LOL, Angie

Yummmm. I made this recipe 2 times while camping these past 2 weeks.

Like I always do I just used 1/2 cup Hot cocoa mix. Had to make 3x as many the 2nd time around because just making one recipe wasnt enough!

Its a perfect and SOOO easy dessert to make in your camper when the weather is kinda nasty outside as it was for us a few days this trip.

Taught my youngest great-niece (and nephew) how to make them and her mom told me a few days ago that shes bugging her ever since they got home to make some of them,

So once again a HUGE hit with my entire family (there were 16 of us all camping at one point :)

We have also made them on a camp stove and it is just as easy.

The HARDEST part of this recipe is waiting for the cookies to cool down long enough before eating them! More than one of us burned our tongues thats for sure lol

Really glad I found your recipe before I left. Its now "pinched" so I dont have to worry about losing this family treasure ever again !!

YUMMMMM!!! :) ~Kimberly
