    Really yummy, really naughty, really quick to eat - my friends and family think I'm a genius for pulling this one out at parties!  -  11 Apr 2014


    Great to make for an instant craving for something sweet. I tossed in some shredded coconut to the hot oat mixture and topped it with white chocolate chips mixed with the peanut butter instead of chocolate chips. If I had nuts on hand it would have been a 5 star for sure! It wasn't overly sweet for me.  -  23 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Recipe was indeed VERY quick and easy. However I found them to be a bit too sweet (this is saying a lot! I've got a terrible sweet tooth, didn't think there was such a thing as "too sweet".) I may make them again, because they were so quick and easy, but next time I'll add a pinch of salt to the oatmeal mixture and maybe some crushed pretzels or chopped salted peanuts.  -  17 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
