Wonderful! I've made this recipe a bunch of times and like it much better than my old no-bake recipe. They always turn out just right. I've found the recipe can hold quite a bit more oatmeal than called for, that way I can justify eating them for breakfast :p

These are fantastic. I used organic peanut butter, and replaced some of the oatmeal with coconut. I found it easier to mix in the PB and oatmeal with the heat still on. Next time I make them I'm going to try Hershey's Special Dark cocoa. DangerChef says Yum!
