These are really yummy...especially when eaten still warm. A friend gave me this recipe but I am not sure of original source.

We've been making no-bakes forever and a day. I reduced this to about 1 3/4 cups of sugar, 2 1/2 cups of quick oats and 1/2 cup of coconut and kept everything as it was directed. They turned out fabulous. I also boiled an extra minute to make sure they "set". Fabulous! Thanks for a great recipe.

This a the perfect way to satisfy a chocolate craving as I always have these ingredients on hand. I halved the recipe and cut the sugar by a couple of tablespoons and the no bakes are plenty sweet. I got 24 nice sized treats. Thank you for sharing this recipe !

I reduced the sugar to 2 cups and it was plenty sweet. Very nice. ... we especially like them from the freezer. Thanks!
