Well, I made these by accident. I had two recipes pulled up, one for these and one for baked oatmeal. I started putting together the ingredients and realized I was making the wrong thing. I couldn't go back so I went ahead and made them thinking that they wouldn't be all that great. I did sub brown sugar for white (only 1/2 cup, not packed) and 1 tsp vanilla or more (I use a lot because it always adds another dimension to the taste, and since I make my own, it's not expensive). I melted the butter so I had to refrigerate a bit before rolling, but I could mix it with a spoon so it made less mess. Lastly, I did not roll them in the confectioners' sugar, since I've been trying to cut calories. I have to admit that I did not have high hopes at all, the recipe sounded good but didn't seem like anything special. Well, after chilling, I've had 5 so far and they are addictive. Kind of like no bakes but with more of a candy bar texture. I'm planning on making truffles for the holidays this year. I'm wondering how they would be dipped in chocolate, maybe with a pecan in the middle. All in all, these were a nice treat. My kids love 'em too!
