No Bake Penotti Monster Cookies

Quite a while ago we received a gift from Penotti Canada of two jars of their product. One jar we used to create our Crunchy Cookie Butter and Coconut Biscotti (Recipe HERE). The other jar we used to make these frightfully good no bake monster cookies. 
No bake cookies are soooooo great, aren't they? Super easy to whip up at the last minute. Throw some spooky candy eyeballs on and *voila*  a Halloween snack the kids will love. And adults. And ghouls. And vampires. Pretty much everyone....

No Bake Penotti Monster Cookies

2 cups sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup baking cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup coconut
candy eyes

In a large saucepan mix sugar, butter, and milk. Bring to a full roiling boil (Full, rolling boil = bubbles can't be stirred down). 
Boil for one minute, stirring constantly. 
Remove from heat and stir in the Duo Penotti and vanilla until smooth.

 Stir in the oats and coconut.

Working fairly quickly, drop by spoonfuls onto parchment paper covered cookie sheet (you can also use plastic wrap). 

Press two eyes into each blob. Let cool completely. 

You can make them all different sizes if you like. They harden up enough to go in a lunchbox if you want to send some to school with the kidlets. 

You can also make these without the eyeballs of course! But.... cooooome ooooon

They're just so cute with the eyeballs. 
I mean.... terrifying.... they are so terrifying with the eyeballs. 
These are basically just a fun update to a classic "haystack" cookie. The Duo Penotti instead of peanut butter makes these extra tasty!
