Oatmeal No-Bakes

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Darlene Summers

I got this recipe from my neighbor Lois when my girls were very small. They are 31 and 37 now and we still make this every Christmas, every bake sale and every time we want a fudgy tasting sweet. It is the most popular sweet I make.

I tried real hard to like these but after 4 days they were still mush.The sweet was way too much.I followed the recipe exactly. Maybe there was something missing.
