Carron's "Killer" Cookies

You can never have enough cookie recipes, right?
I ripped this recipe out of a  Family Circle magazine about a year ago, but never got around to making the cookies. A few weeks ago I was looking through all of my recipes and came across it and decided to make it. I am so glad I finally made them because they were sooo yummy!

You can't go wrong with cookies that have Oatmeal, Rice Krispies, Coconut & chocolate. What a great combination.
The day I made these my Mother-in-law was at our house. I told her to take some home for her and 'Pa'. She only took one for her and one for him. Five minutes later there was a knock on our door...it was my Father-in-law wanting more cookies. He didn't know why she only brought 2 cookies, he wanted more, haha. They loved these cookies!
And if you want to be really naughty, turn these cookies into ice cream sandwiches. Oh my!!
