Picked from the Tree: Chocolate Oatmeal No Bake Cookies

I come from a long line of divine cooks.  Their recipes were written on hundreds of little cards and shared. Eventually some of those cards were passed on to me.  Every once in a while I like to pull one of those recipes from my ‘family tree’ and get all nostalgic.  ’Picked from the Tree’ is a series where I document those recipes from my family tree and maybe share a memory or two.

These little cookies been a family favorite for as long as I remember.  Whenever I’m craving some chocolate and have none on hand, this is where I turn.  I may not have a bag of M&M’s handy, but I always have oatmeal and baking cocoa in the cupboard.  I’ve never posted them before, although I make them almost weekly, because they’re not the most attractive of desserts (in fact, we called them ‘gorilla poops’ growing up) but once I made them today I thought, “Who cares? They still taste amazing.”
