This recipe definitely hit the spot for my me (and the family). If you're new to it, boiling the milk for two minutes without stirring seems extreme, but it just makes the consistency a little ...

Outstanding! Did not have evaporated milk and used 1/4 c milk and 1 T honey. Boiling + stirring for long enough ensures that it will set. Solidified nicely in about 20 minutes.

I've tried several of the recipes on this site for a no-bake choc/oat cookie and this is by far the best recipe I've tasted. Be sure and stir the mixture over MEDIUM heat so it has time to thick...

I can't really rate these, because they never set up properly for me. It could be me though. I followed the directions, even the 2 min. boiling time without stirring, which I thought was wierd...

Tastes like a chocolate, oatmeal, PB fudge. YUM! I stirred in about 3/4 cup of milk chocolate chips just before putting mix into pan for a little extra chocolate.

My co-workers couldn't get enough! I brought breakfast and this was the first to go.

These bars were delicious! They were quite sweet and I even reduced the sugar! I highly recommend this recipe.
