Recipe by Michelle Berteig

This recipe has been in my family for over 30 years. They are actually kind of a cross between a cookie and candy.

These were ok, but a little bit bitter. I would suggest cutting the cocoa to 1/4 cup, and adding a tsp. of vanilla right before adding the oats. Otherwise, a good recipe, brings back memories!
