I came up with these cookies years ago when I had to improvise to make my no bake cookies , I had no chocolate but lots of coconut and marshmallows and this is what I came up with and they turned out delicious. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have for all these years.

Ingredients

2/3 c
butter
1 pkg
white chocolate chips
1 pkg
of mini marshmallows
4 c
oatmeal
2 tsp
coconut or vanilla extract
2 c
coconut
2/3 c
cup smooth peanut butter ; optional
1/2 c
finely chopped pecans or walnuts ; optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large sauce pan add the butter , chips , and marshmallows .
2
Over med-high heat cook until all melted and mixed together.
3
Remove from the heat and add the coconut extract and the peanut butter if using and mix well .
4
Add the coconut , nuts and oatmeal. mix well until all the oatmeal is coated well.
5
Quickly form cookies into golf ball shape and size ( carefully because they will be hot ) and place on waxed paper and let cool. Sometimes I use 2 tablespoons to help form the balls into shape or I also like to flatten them out into a shape of a cookie.

Note : Another fellow cook suggested to use an ice cream scoop instead of rolling them , I have never used one but I'm sure it would work great...Thanks Henrie

Note : you can roll them in extra coconut or powdered sugar after rolling into the ball shape and then let them cool.
