They have been around for 40 yrs. I used to make them in junior high school in home economics, they are called raggedy robins!

I make refrigerator oatmeal with the same ingredients. I use a half cup of milk, and it doesn't need sugar. It's a really good, filling breakfast.

My my mom made these for is and called them "black" cookies because they were made from black cocoa and our last name was black! Also- we used Comdensed milk and boiled it from the stove! Couldn't make these on a cold day though, as they won't set. So yummy either eay!! Can't wait to try this particular recepie!

45 years ago we called these Gorilla Cookies in the forestry camps for delinquent boys in western Maryland. The ingredients came from federal and state surplus food programs for schools. For the residents, these were by far the favorite lunch item when working in the forests - nutritious and high energy.

My daughter and her college friends used to make these cookies and called them "gorilla poops.!" I think their recipe called for a little more cocoa because theirs seem more chocolatey than this recipe. Will check it out! Have fun with the "new" name for these cookies!
