I can't rember what a they are& my mom can't rember what they were called.I thought cow patties....I know its got lots of chocolate,oatmeal and they didn't get baked.we stirred,spread in pan or made balls and flattened them.I was about 14 then.but with my SIL here and my 2 nephews...i'm constantly yelling get out of cabinets,get out of kitchen,shut the yours...and my pringles?I bought cajan thinking they'd leave them alone?well the oldest likes those! anyway.I thought they'd like these cookies among other things i've got brewing for them.

So does this cookie sound like anything ya'll have had had??????

Here's a similar one that uses chocolate chips instead of cocoa:

No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
1 stick margarine
1/2 cup milk
2 cups sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
3-4 tablespoons peanut butter, optional
3 cups oatmeal
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place chocolate chips, peanut butter (if used), oatmeal, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Combine the margarine, milk, and sugar in a saucepan; bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute. Combine the hot mixture with the oatmeal mixture; stir well. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper.

This is the one I have always used:

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies (No Bake!)

1 stick (1/2 c.) butter 1/2 c. cocoa 2 c. sugar 1/2 c. milk 3 c. quick oats 1/2 c. peanut butter 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine butter, cocoa, sugar and milk in a large saucepan; stir and simmer until bubbles form around the edge of the saucepan, and mixture appears smoothly blended. Remove from heat. Add oats, peanut butter, and vanilla. Stir thoroughly. Drop by rounded Tablespoonful on waxed paper; cool. Store in a container in a cool place. Place container in refrigerator, if storing for a considerable time. It's a nice compromise between nutrition and Chocolate Cravings!

i mail them to my son's..
if you make them but eliminate the oatmeal, and beat it until it loses most of it's gloss after cooking- then spread it into buttered pan.. you make fudge just like the old fashioned hershey's cocoa fudge. it's not a creamy fudge- it's a great fudge- i make both often.. hugs [thumb] [Wink]

Adirondack, that's a great idea! Easy fudge. Thanks, I like that idea! [thumb]

i still think it turns out the same as hershey's old fashioned fudge..
i know the recipe for these with and without oatmeal by heart..
i don't have a candy thermometor- i go by minutes ans texture..for length of cooking times.
