So I was attempting to make a Texas sheet cake for our family reunion picnic and I thought I enough powdered sugar but I didn't so I came up with the idea of making the frosting like chocolate no bake cookies. The oatmeal and coconut made the frosting thicker. It was a hit at the reunion. I had no leftover. Try it. So fudgey and good. If you like no bake cookie you will love this.
