LOOKING for: chocolate marshmallow coconut drop cookie

summerlaylaNovember 18, 2007


I'm looking for a recipe for a cookie that my grandmother used to make at christmas. She used to make everyone in my family their own tin of cookies every year for christmas. Now that she's passed away, me and my sister do it for our family! This year, we actually have a request for one particular kind of cookie she used to make. Nobody knows what they are called and I can't seem to find anything online. We know for sure the following ingredients were in it (but are not limited to just these) cocoa powder, coconut, multi-coloured marshmallows. i think there might be oatmeal in it, but i honestly cannot remember. any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!!

I found this in my SIL's Betty Crocker cookbook awhile back and have been wanting to try it. Maybe this is what you're looking for?

Oatmeal-Chocolate Clusters

(Betty Crocker)

1 pkg (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup butter or margarine
16 large marshmallows
½ tsp vanilla
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup flaked coconut

Heat chocolate chips, butter, and marshmallows in 3-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth; remove from heat. Mix in vanilla, oats and coconut. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper and shape into clusters with hands. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. About 3½ dozen candies.

Bran-Chocolate Clusters: Substitute ½ cup whole bran cereal for ½ cup of the oats.

Here's another. Just calls for regular marshmallows but maybe she altered the recipe to use mini colored ones?

If she actually baked them in an oven, this isn't it.
