...or you could just eat them out of the pot...

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
  • teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 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.
