In a large saucepan, combine and boil together gently over medium high heat for 5 minutes or until mixture reaches about 230 degrees F on a candy thermometer:
- 3 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup melted butter
- 1 & 1/4 cups milk
Once mixture begins to boil it is very important not to stir it at all.
- 3 cups large, rolled oats
- 1 cup unsweetened fine coconut
- 12 tbsp cocoa
Add the boiled mixture to the dry ingredients until well combined and chill until mixture is able to be shaped into 1 1/2-inch balls. Roll the balls in additional coconut. Makes about 4 dozen. These freeze very well.
