BLAIR LONERGAN FOR TASTE OF HOME
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
- 1/2 cup milk (I use 2% milk)
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups quick-cooking oats
Step 1: Prepare baking sheet
Line a large baking sheet with parchment or a silicone mat and set aside. You’ll want the tray ready to go as soon as your cookie mixture is combined!
Step 2: Boil chocolate mixture
Combine butter, milk, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, whisking regularly. Continue whisking and allow the mixture to boil for about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Step 3: Add oats
Stir the oats into the chocolate mixture until completely combined.
Step 4: Drop onto baking sheet
Use a spoon or dough scoop to drop the oat mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Work quickly, because the chocolate will start to set right away.
