Vintage Recipe: No-Bake Coconut Chocolate Drop Cookies

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 

With kids heading back to school, this recipe for No-Bake Coconut Chocolate Drop Cookies comes in handy! It makes a nice addition to lunchboxes or a welcome after-school treat! It's so easy to make, the children can even help make it! Be sure to cook the sugar mixture for the full three minutes or your cookies may wind up too soft!

This recipe was handwritten on a double sized decorative recipe card. It was found in an old large recipe file box. The age of the recipe card is unknown.
