Chewy No Bake Chocolate Macaroons

Printable Recipe

Hands on time: 10 minutes

Chilling time at least 30 minutes, but keep in the freezer

Makes 4 ½ dozen

2 cups granulated sugar
6 tbsp cocoa powder
½ cup butter
½ cup milk (this time I used almond milk)
½ tsp vanilla extract
3 cups instant rolled oats
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut

1. Combine the sugar, cocoa powder, butter and milk in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil, stirring.  Remove from heat and add the vanilla.  

2. Stir in the oats and coconut flakes until well blended.

3. Transfer to a large cookie sheet lined with parchment – large teaspoonfuls, with space in between and flattened.  Place in the freezer and wait for 30 minutes.  .

Once they are frozen, transfer to a container, placing parchment between each layer – to eliminate any sticking.   Keep them in the freezer, ready to eat whenever you get the  craving.
