An Old Favorite -- No Bake Cookies

Friday Favorite of course! I know it's two foods in a week but I have been craving these childhood favorites all week long since Alison made them last week (Alison is our SGC food editor) and so I broke down and made them this afternoon and realized why I have loved them my entire life -- entirely Chocolaty, gooey and so yummy.

1/2 C. Cocoa
1/2 C. Evaporated Milk
1/2 C. Butter
2 C. Sugar
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
3 C. Oats
1/2 Cup coconut

Combine cocoa, milk, butter and sugar in a saucepan. Cook over med. heat stirring constantly until it reaches a full boil. Continue boiling for one minute -- at one minute take off the stove and mix in the vanilla, oats and coconut. Mix well until coated and then drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let stand until firm
