Here's the recipe in case you want to try some, too.
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
In a sauce pan placed over medium heat, combine the butter, milk and sugar. Stir well until the butter is melted and bring to a light boil.
Add the chocolate chips and rolled oats. Mix until the chocolate chips melt, combine with the sugar and coat the oats. Add the vanilla and stir.
Using a tablespoon, scoop up some of the batter and drop onto wax or parchment paper. Allow to cool. You can refrigerate to speed up the solidification.
Makes 2 1/2 to 3 dozen cookies
I found this copy of the recipe at The Accidental Hedonist site, although I have a copy of it in several cookbooks, too.
