I knew I just had to try this recipe when I came across it in my “Creative Cooking: Desserts” cookbook. I already had all the ingredients in my pantry, and it looked really easy to make. I was somewhat doubtful that such a simple recipe would taste very good…but they really do. 🙂
You do need to keep an eye on these while they’re cooking though – the bottoms burn easily if you leave them in too long. I adjusted the cooking time down to 12 minutes, and they came out perfect. The first batch that I cooked at the recommended 15 minutes burned on the bottom. 🙂

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine cocoa, milk, coconut, salt and vanilla in a bowl.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Be careful not over bake – they burn easily.
