april03 REVIEW: I always found it more tasty, when after I boiled it for several minutes to add the coconut to the chocolate on the stove, my boys like it when I softened some of the oatmeal to the choclate as well. makes them more chewy.

andy REVIEW: They taste good, but they just fall apart. I didn't add nuts, so that might be the problem.

Barbara COMMENT: Many haystack recipes (this one included) do not specify that you need to boil the first mixture for about five minutes. If you drop some of it into a glass of cold water and it turns into a ball, you have boiled it enough. I don't know how many haystack recipes I have seen that leave out this important step.

sstacinator COMMENT: I must of made them wrong, I measured & did everything the correct way it was written but it did not turn out right...did not harden or stick together after I placed them on the wax paper. Wish it would of turned out. Does anyone know how to fix a bad batch?

Justine REVIEW: Maybe I did not boil long enough... the haystacks haven't really hardened. I guess more elaboration of how long to boil would be helpful. I did not boil a long time - maybe a minute.

Guest Foodie REVIEW: These cookies are exactly like the ones I ate when I was a kid! Perfect! I did make one tiny change, only based on what I had in my pantry, I replaced the walnuts with pecans, though when I was a kid we never put any nuts in... The most important thing for me was the chocolate flavor and consistency and it is like a flashback to my childhood.
