I got this recipe from my home economics teacher when I was in the 8th grade almost 40 years ago. Even after all these years, they are still my favorite cookies. A chocolate oatmeal non-bake cookie. Trust me, they are delicious!

Boy, do these take me back! I use to make these a lot when I was in Girl Scouts...about 35 years was a great way to teach the girls how to cook simple recipes, and this was definitely one the keepers! Thanks for keeping a great memory alive...I wouldn't change a thing!

I've made these twice now. My kids and my husband gobbled them up both times. The second time I made them with raisons in them. They are delicious. Great combination chocolate and oatmeal. We love them! Thanks for sharing with us.
