ISO recipe "beaver houses" drop cookie (cooked sugar, cocoa, oats, coconut, walnuts)

this is an old late 1960's - early to mid 1970's recipe from the young people's magazine called something like Golden Magazine. I think the younger kids read "Jack and Jill" magazine.

anyway - it is a drop cookie that you make on the stovetop (no baking) - and drop on the wax paper-lined cookie sheet by the spoonful.

it consisted of white granulated sugar, and cocoa powder. Cook in a saucepan to a boil - for X minutes. Remove from heat, add some vanilla extract, some flaked uncooked oats, some long-thread coconut, some walnuts

no eggs or flour or soda or anything like that. It might have had a BIT of salt in it

definitely NO rice crisp cereal or anything like that - i'm pretty sure of it.

any ideas for a more exact recipe?

thank you.
