Easter Egg Haystacks

Some people call these little guys 'haystacks' and some people call them 'frogs'. I grew up calling them frogs and this is my mother's recipe which she made for my sister and I growing up. They are an easy little treat to whip up and with some jelly beans or little crunchy eggs as a garnish on top, they are perfect for Easter!

Here is the recipe:

2 cups of brown sugar (or one cup of white and one cup of brown)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
Combine these ingredients in a pot over medium heat until the butter and sugar mixture is melted together. 

In another bowl, combine these ingredients:

2 1/2 cups oatmeal 
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup coconut
pinch of salt

Pour warm mixture over dry mix and drop spoon fulls onto wax paper on a baking sheet and put in the fridge for about an hour.
