BLAIR LONERGAN FOR TASTE OF HOME

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

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.
