  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment. Set aside.
  • In a medium size saucepan cook the granulated sugar, cocoa powder, and milk over medium-low heat until all the sugar dissolves. If it's got a nice bubble going this should take about 3 to 5 minutes, or so. Keep stirring but not obsessively, it just needs a light stir every 30 seconds or so.
  • Once the sugar is dissolved add the butter, don't fret if you didn't soften it. If it's not softened just cut it into small chunks, it'll totally still work. Keep stirring until the butter is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • Now add the vanilla, oats and salt. Stir until combined, then remove from the heat.
  • Add the coconut, stir again. I know right, it's a lot of stirring.
  • Now toss in the milk chocolate chips and the white chocolate chips. Stir again. Stop rolling your eyes at me. Stirring is good.
  • You are now done stirring. Yah. Round of applause.
  • Take a tablespoon or an ice cream scoop and drop the cookies onto the cookie sheets. It's okay for them to be lop-sided and not perfect. They actually look better if they are imperfect. I also suggest making some really big and some small. Since you are not baking them they don't need to be uniform in size. Making different sized ones is nice, that way wee little hooligans can grab small ones and bigger adult hooligans can grab the bigger ones. Santa can grab any size he wants as long as he leaves good gifts.
  • Allow to cool completely. Good luck with this step. It's impossible not to dig right in. Quite honestly I was eating this right out of the saucepan with an ice cream scoop before I took photos. Just keepin' it real peeps. Just keepin' it real.
  • Serve with a big old jolly Saint Nick smile!
