Poop Cookies

I used to have these cookies as a child and now my kids get to enjoy them. They think it is hilarious that we used to call them poop cookies. I mean isn't Poop cookie just so much more fun compared to say No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal cookie? If its not you need to get in touch with your inner 6 year old boy.

Appetizing they do not look, but they are pretty good. Kind of a sickening sweetness mixed with the chew of oatmeal. Joe says they are too sweet but he prefers the bitter to the sweet. I know, whats wrong with him right?

No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
aka Poop Cookies
2 cups sugar (did I say they were healthy?)
1/2 cup butter (again never said they were healthy)
1/2 cup milk (protein!!)
6 TBSP cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
3-4 cups oats
Mix sugar, butter, and milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Boil for two minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and cocoa. Mix well. Add oats. Drop by whatever size of cookie spoon you desire onto wax paper, foil, whatever you choose and let set for about 6 hours.

We start eating when cool but they are really mushy and still warm in the middle. The dough is really hot so the dropping job is not one for a kid (or mom) who can't stop themselves from licking. Burns will happen. I know someone that happened too. She scraped the biggest glob onto the pan and well her finger hurt so she had to lick it really quick cause that's what you do when you are burning right? You lick the burning, hot, melted chocolate off the finger. She's okay now.

Oh gosh these are soooo good! Sometimes we add in peanut butter chips or peanut butter and it makes it all that much more rich and gooey and wonderful. mmmm!

I know this is an old post - but we made them once for a Halloween bake sale at my son's school - we named them Chocolate Bat Brains and have called them that ever since.

Isn't it funny how a name sticks with something. Bat brains is a good name! :)
