Fudgy Oat Drops

I got this recipe out of The Friend magazine a couple years ago. These are my favorite no-bake cookies. Use only milk chocolate chips, not semi-sweet. For some reason these only turn out with milk chocolate.


1 cup milk chocolate chips (no substitutions)
1/3 cup butter or margarine
16 large marshmallows*
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup flaked coconut
1 tsp. vanilla

Place chips, butter, and marshmallows in a large sauce pan and melt over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Mix in oats and coconut. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls (I use a cookie scoop) on waxed paper and cool. Store in an airtight container.

*16 large marshmallows = 208 miniature marshmallows (or approximately 2 1/2 cups)
