  1. Awesome! What a nice break from the usual chocolate peanut butter ones! I have a child that can't have peanut butter so he is especially appreciative!
  2. Great little no bakes! I didn't have any evaporated milk, so I used 1 cup of sweetened condesned milk. Didn't need to add any additional sugar. YUMMY! And they set up beautifully!!! Thank for posting!
  3. These are really quick & good I did however have to cut back on the oatmeal. I used 3 cups instead of 4 cups. Using 4 cups my first batch dried out. After cutting back to 3 cups of oatmeal,they were perfect. Thank you.
  4. HOLY COW!! These are awesome! My boys (including my husband) love these. I don't think they even cooled all the way before people started eating them. <br/>Warning::::::make sure you have your arms warmed up for stirring.
  5. Really subtle flavor, but oh so good. Made these for a school function along with other goodies. I didn't do something right (I made them at 3am so that could be why, I was exhausted). They didn't set up that well so I took them apart and rolled them into little balls. This let them set up better, than I just drizzled with chocolate. They went fast! I'll for sure be making these again, just when I'm not so tired.


My DH & i moved closer to where he works, next door to his parents so we are there to help them when they get older. I like to cook experiment with foods, so i will have more time for this. I really do like this site & the support we get from friends we do not know.
