Chocolate Haystacks

Are there days when you are too tired to pull together that special treat when people are coming over?  Do not fear - Haystacks are here!  So easy and quick to make - and super easy to eat!

Chocolate Haystacks


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • ½ cup milk
  • 125g butter
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 ½ cups shredded coconut
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • Red glazed cherries (optional)

In large, heavy saucepan, stir together sugar and cocoa.   Stir in milk and add butter.  Heat to a full boil, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and stir in the oats, coconut and nuts.

Drop the mix onto greaseproof paper on a tray.  If you like add the cherries (for a little colour or that glazed cherry nostalgic look) Let stand until set.  Store in a cool dry place.

So easy to make!

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz.
