By popular request, here is the recipe for the Cowpie Cookies that I made for Sophia's poopy party. If you google for a recipe for cowpie cookies, you will find some other versions as well, and many of them seem to include peanut butter. Maybe I will have to try those sometime too!
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup butter
pinch of salt
2 1/2 cups oats
1 cup shredded coconut
1/8 tsp vanilla and/or almond extract
1/2 cup chopped nutes (optional)
In a saucepan, combine the sugar, milk, cocoa, butter, and salt. Bring to a boil and boil for one minute. Remove from heat and add oats, coconut, extract(s), and nuts, if using. Using a large tablespoon or scoop, drop mixture onto wax paper and let harden for 1/2 hour to an hour.
Just so you know, the way I figure, this recipe includes oats, so that makes it a breakfast food - right?
