My father has been after me to clearly enunciate what exactly hot dudes are. So I told him the next time I made nice, hot dudes, I’d show you how you can make them too.
First assemble this nice cast of characters.
Put a cup of shortening, about a cup and a half of brown sugar, about a half cup of regular sugar and 2 eggs in a mixing bowl.
Add 2 cups of flour, 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of baking soda.
Chuckle at your lively audience.
Anyways, add about 1 and 1/2 cup of oats, 1 and 1/2 cup of coconut and lots and lots of chocolate chips. These last 3 ingredients are all about what you’re feeling. Feeling coconuty? Add more coconut. Want to pretend these are healthy? Make it two cups of oats. But always add loads of chocolate chips.
Get out a spoon and plop these little numbers on a cookie sheet. They don’t need to be perfect. Slide into a 375 degree oven. Cook for approximately 8 minutes and 30 seconds. Possibly a teense bit longer.
You want them to be falling apart. Eat a few hot ones and then as soon as you can get them off the sheet without creating havoc, stick them in the freezer. Ah, so wonderful. Because you didn’t cook the heck out of them originally, they just melt in your mouth after thawing on the counter for a minute or two. So wonderful.
