christmas treats: hot rods

One thing everyone looks forward to at Christmas, at least in our house is when mom bakes. My mom makes the tastiest and most yummy desserts during the holidays and that's when my weight watching goes right out the window!

One of my favorites are CHOCOLATE MACAROONS or "HOT RODS" as mom calls them. She got the recipe from her mom (my Nana) and they are quick and simple. Your kids can even help and love making them.


2 cups white sugar
1/2 cups butter
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup milk
3 cups oatmeal
6 tsp cocoa


  • Melt butter and cocoa first (that way its smooth). Add milk and sugar. 
  • Bring to boil over medium heat for 2 minutes. 
  • Add coconut and oatmeal. 
  • Drop by tablespoonfuls onto wax paper and put into the fridge to cool. 
  • Then piece them out and either put them into a container or zip lock bags for the freezer. 
  • When you are ready to serve take them out 1/2 hour before guests arrive.

Easy and Fun!
