My mother got this exact same recipe off the back of a box of Quaker Oats back in the 1960's. Loved them then, still love them. They are always a big hit with the kids and grandkids and adults.

Love these!! I have made these every year at Christmas for the past 30 years. Everyone loves them and asks me for the recipe. I got the recipe from a friend who called them "Oatmeal Carmelitas".
