Gorilla Poooos A.K.A. No Bake Cookies

Here you go, Mom.  This is the recipe for Gorilla Poos that I learned to make in HomeEc at Butler Middle School.  These are perfect for summer days when its too hot to turn on the oven but you still need a sugar/chocolate fix:

Bring to a boil (I use the microwave.):

2 C. sugar

1/2 C. butter (or shortening)

1/2 C. milk

3 T. cocoa

1/4 t. salt

Pour the above mixture over following ingredients which have been assembled in a mixing bowl:

3 C. quick-cooking oats

1 t. vanilla

1/2 C. nuts (optional)

1 C. coconut (optional)

1 C. semi-sweet choco chips (optional)

After combining the liquids with the solids use a small ice cream scoop to form the cookies and place on wax paper to solidify.  I let the mixture cool in the bowl a little before scooping so the cookies don't slump.
