Remember the good old days at school and you got the lunch and it had one of those homemade chocolate oatmeal cookies? Well, this is that exact cookie, okay they taste like candy and not cookies but they call them cookies.
This is a must cookie for Christmas! Everyone loves these, young and old. The Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are a hit at Christmas parties as well and they are very inexpensive to make and only takes a few minutes of time.
The best part? well, beside they are delicious is that you only have one pot, a measuring cup and one spoon dirty!
They are so simple to make! Using only 6 ingredients.
You`ll Need :
2 cups of white sugar
1/2 cup of whole milk or canned evaporated milk
4 Tablespoon of cocoa
1 stick of butter ( 1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups of oatmeal
In a large cooking pot add the sugar and the milk, mix well. Add the butter.
Over medium high heat, stirring often so not to scorch the sugar, bring the milk, sugar and butter to a boil.
Stirring constantly for 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract, mix well. Add the oatmeal, mix well.
Drop from a tablespoon onto foil or wax paper, they will set as they cool.
Allow to cool and store in an air tight container.
I am going to give these cookies I made tonight to my elderly friends, makes awesome gifts for those people who have everything.
