My husband found this recipe several years ago in a the newspaper. It has become a Christmas tradition at our house every year since. Sometimes my husband fixes these other times throughout the year for a special family treat!

Very easy. The ones I made were all right, but not as good as I thought they'd be. I think the oats I used are really old which is affecting the taste. I'll have to buy some fresh and try again...
