Oatmeal Chocolate Frogs


One of my childhood best friends mom would make something like this all the time and I LOVED them.  Then my now BFF showed up with something very similar recently (if not the same from what I remember).  They are AMAZING and beyond easy to make!


2 cups sugar

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup coconut

3 cups of rolled oats


Bring sugar, milk, butter and cocoa to a boil while stirring.  Stir and boil for 3 to 5 minutes.

stir in vanilla

stir in coconut and oats

Place spoonfuls onto waxed papered cookie sheet and put in the fridge for 1 hour to set.  Makes 3 dozen frogs.



Low Fat Cookies And Cream Freezer Cake



1 cup of prepared vanilla pudding

3 cup(s) of nutri whip light (found in dessert freezer) 

9 oz chocolate wafers (found in cookie section)



  • Line bottom and sides of a 13- to 14-inch long pan with plastic wrap, making sure you use a big enough piece so that you have enough extra wrap to cover prepared cake.
  • In a medium bowl, gently fold pudding into whipped topping.
  • Take a wafer and spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons of cream mixture over cookie surface. Top with another wafer and spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons of cream mixture over second cookie; repeat to form a stack of about 6 cookies and cream. Carefully turn stack on its side and place in pan so cookies are standing on their sides. Repeat with remaining cookies until you create 1 long row of cookies and cream in pan.
  • When cake assembly is complete, use a spatula to scoop up any cream that has oozed out of sides of cookies and place back on top of cake.
  • Wrap plastic tightly around cake in pan and freeze immediately for a minimum of 2 hours.
  • Slice cake on a diagonal into 12 pieces
