I haven't made these in years... that's the best I can do for self control... My brother's wife was feeling inspired and whipped up a batch this week. mmm... LOVES TARA!
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup cocoa, Hershey's
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- 1/2 cup nuts, chopped
- Bring sugar, butter, milk and cocoa to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla. Add remaining ingredients and stir well. (that's usually as far as I get). Drop by spoonful (into mouth) on to wax paper and cool in fridge until set. Store in sealed container.
