Get In My Belly!

These were a childhood favorite that I have been making for years. They are basically fudge with oatmeal in them, and so addicting! My family love them too and I make them often. I have been known to take the lazy way out and pour the whole thing into a parchment lined cookie sheet and just cut them into squares as they are cooling. For me, so much quicker than dropping them. Everyone needs these in their life!

These are one of my favorites since I was a kid. My wife and I make them often for the kids and I wanted to make them for company we had recently to have after our lunch. They are a no fail kind of sweet that everyone loves and I knew would be a good choice. I added in nuts for added flavor and crunch. They were fantastic as always!

I have to say these are the best cookies and are more like candy to us. We can't leave them alone once we pick one up. Since they are so easy to make my granddaughter loves to help me make them. One of our all time favs!

As far as we are concerned this is the best cookie out there! It tastes just like fudge, and they disappeared too fast for me!

This recipe is quite old it's been around for years, it's still the best no-bake cookie and such a chocolate treat, hey I could go through the whole plate in one evening, these are totally addicting, a great treat in hot weather cause you don't heat up your oven, I was so pleased to see this recipe here, it reminds me I need to make them again, try mixing in coarsely chopped salted pretzels instead of oats for the ultimate treat! thanks for sharing this great treat!
