Gorilla Poop Cookies

Ummm, yes, I did just used the word "poop" in my blog title.  Stay with me though, I can explain.  I'm not sure about where you live but here in Northern Colorado it's hot!  Too hot to heat up the oven, at least that's what I think.  So, what's a girl to do if she wants a home made cookie but doesn't want to bake?  Well, she makes Gorilla Poop cookies of course!

I'm not sure where that name came from.  I've called them that for as long as I can remember and my kids think it's both gross and funny which some how, magically, makes the cookies taste even better.  So, have you heard of them?  Normal people call them No-bake cookies - we're clearly not normal and Gorilla Poop is way more fun to say.

Gorilla Poop Cookies
(No Bakes if you are normal)

1 stick of butter
1/4 C. cocoa
1/2 C. milk
2 C. sugar
3 C oatmeal

Mix butter, cocoa, milk and sugar in a pan.  Melt together while stirring.  Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and add in oatmeal.  Mix well and drop by the spoonful onto wax paper.  Let set and cool.  Then eat and enjoy!

They are quick, easy, and take only a matter of minutes to make.  Now that is my kind of a cookie!
