This was a specialty of Margaret Callis (R.I.P.), a dear soul who lived on Gwynn’s Island, Virginia and was a member of the Baptist Church where my dad was the pastor.

At Christmastime she used to bring us a waxed-paper-lined metal container full of these. Mama asked her enough times for the recipe that she finally gave it to her!

Here's my "variation on a theme." I used coconut palm sugar and real butter. I can't eat refined sugar and can’t stand the taste of margarine.


2 cups sugar [coconut palm sugar]
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup margarine [butter]
1/3 cup cocoa

Combine, and bring to a rolling boil on medium heat. Boil one minute, stirring often.

Remove from heat and stir in:
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups quick oats, uncooked
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Combine until well mixed, then drop by tablespoons onto waxed paper. Allow to cool thoroughly.

Makes about two dozen pieces.

I've been making them

for years. They weren't called that, but, that's what they are. WE never added nuts, though. They are so easy to make. The problem usually has been keeping people from just popping them into their mouths.

In the South

They are called No Bake Cookies or Stovetop cookies, a variation of this can be found in about any Church cook book.
