No-Bake Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

I must apologize in advance for these sinfully delicious cookies… or cookie balls, whatever you’d like to call them. My aunt made these one year for Christmas and I was in heaven. After eating about twenty of them I found out they had three sticks of butter – ah! So now I only make them once or twice a year because they will seriously sit in my fridge and I will just eat them throughout the day.

You will need 1 1/2 cups of butter, 3 cups of oatmeal, 6 oz of chocolate chips, 3 1/3 cups of powdered sugar, 1 1/2 cups of coconut flakes, and 1 tsp. vanilla. See, I told you this was sinful.

All you do is mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. By hand is the easiest because you are going to have to squish that butter and get it worked in with all of the other ingredients to look like a dough like this:

I love the easiness of decorating these. By far, a little roll around in sanding sugar is the best.

How simple was that?

You could make any color under the sun and color-coordinate with the occasion. I’m warning you though, don’t make these too often. I’m not responsible for any weight gain :)

    Great recipe, definitely use your hands and arm muscles but well worth it* I rolled mine in confectioners sugar at the end, Delicioso*
    Ended up with all.100! All different sizes, which I wanted…sometimes you want just a little bit of sweet!

    Hey i just did these cookie and I found it a bit hard to make them into balls ax they were cracking all the time. I converted them into metric as i feel better working with grams instead of cups and i may have converted them wrong. can tou please convert them for me so I check whether i did well or not

    JUST MADE THEM! DELICIOUS IS HOW I DESCRIBE IT!! I used peanut butter and chocolate chips instead and instead of rolling it in sanded sugar (they were already sweet as it is) i just rolled them and somei kept plain amd some i rolled in a little bit of powered sugar!WAS QUICK AND EASY!!! SO GOOD!!

    Hi Sharon, Something must have went wrong. Did you use cold butter and really work it in with your hands with the other ingredients? What about the powdered sugar? Did you use the correct amount?

  5. Sharon says

    I only used one cup of butter for this recipie and found they still tasted very buttery. Sanding sugar also refuses to stick to them. Overall very disappointing.

    I needed a quick and easy dessert and found this recipe on Six Sisters… I used 1 package of cream cheese and 1 stick of butter and rolled them in crushed graham cracker crumbs. They were delicious!!

    Hi Mara, You aren’t supposed to taste butter. I’m thinking maybe the margarine is what made the difference?

  8. Mara Marie says

    Are you supposed to taste the butter so much? And I used margarine by the way.

  9. Emily says

    @ Christy: Hi Christy, I have not tried it with margarine. Let me know how it turns out! You could do a half batch just to test it.

    i saw these on the mom dot forum! I can’t have dairy but i might try this recipe substituting maple syrup for the sugar and butter. Wish me luck.

    just curiously, how many cookie balls did you get out of the dough?

    I made about 1 inch diameter cookie balls (maybe a little less) and got at least 3 dozen

  12. Emily says

    Well, it’s more sticky than runny, it’s hard to make into balls. I did everything exactly by the recipe. I might try and add more oats and see what happens.

    Very strange! Leave the butter cold and try adding in more oats is all I can think of. The dough should be very thick and not too sticky-

  14. Emily says

    The dough is too runny, it won’t roll into balls and stay that way. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Ashley, the dough should be more thick than runny. Are you adding 3 cups of oats? Are you melting the butter instead of room temperature? Look over the ingredients again and let me know if you think of anything!

    I am totally and utterly in love with this recipe! I adore coconut (and chocolate of couuurrsee!) but the oven we have is a complete liability, so having a recipe that by passes this issue is fabulous! Lovely post indeed.

    Let me know how you like them! They are very decadent. My husband doesn’t like them, but he also doesn’t like coconut. I’m in love with them!
