Dirt Cookies

In the recipe book they’re called Boiled Chocolate Cookies but ‘boiled’ doesn’t sound good when talking about cookies. Neither does dirt, but that’s what they look like. That or clumps of manure. You can call them Manure Cookies if you like.
They’re called boiled cookies because you boil up some stuff to make a chocolatey sauce and then you pour oats in, scoop out in clumps and voila, cookies. You don’t need an oven, just a stove top and a pot. I’ve modified the recipe to make it vegan. It’s a great way to get your chocolate fix without actual chocolate or trying to find vegan chocolate.

1/2 cup - margarine
1/2 cup - soy milk
2 cups - granulated sugar
1/2 cup - cocoa

2 1/2 cups - rolled oats

*Optional: coconut and/or chopped nuts included with oats

Put margarine, soy milk, sugar and cocoa into pot. Bring to a boil stirring often. Boil for 5 minutes.

Remove from heat. Stir in rolled oats about a cup at a time (if you put in too much oats, the chocolate sauce will dry quickly and your cookies won’t stick together and you’ll have a lot of chocolate crumblies). Scoop out spoonfuls as big or little as you like onto wax paper. Let them cool a bit before eating.


Update: Kim's dad came up with the name Tishy-Poops (cuz one of my nicknames is Tishy-Poo and they look like poops) but I also like Chocolate Crumblies.
