Thursday Recipe - Bird Poop, aka No-Bake White Chocolate Cookies

I offered to make cookies for my daughter the other day. She announced she wanted Bird Poop. So we made bird poop for her. They were very tasty, despite the name.

Bird Poop Cookies

1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. milk or coconut milk
2 c. sugar
3 c. oatmeal, quick-cooking is best
1/2 c. shredded coconut
1/2 c. white chocolate chips
1 c. mini marshmallows
1/2 c. Craisins, optional

Toss together oatmeal, coconut, white chocolate, marshmallows, and craisins in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
Melt butter, stir in milk and sugar. Bring to a rolling boil, boil and stir for two full minutes.
Pour over the oatmeal mixture. Stir until mixed. The white chocolate and marshmallows should mostly melt, but not all the way. Scoop out by large spoonfuls, plop onto waxed paper. Let cool and set up for at least 30 minutes.
Makes about 24.
