Would make this again.
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. 5 stars

I had a hard time getting the candies to melt and the crust was very sticky. I probably made a mistake myself, but it was not a good experience. If I ever tried it again I would crush the candies a lot before I try melting them. 2 stars

Would make this again.
Used caramel ice cream topping and dry roasted peanuts to simplify the recipe and created something akin to my favorite candy bar. Sticky and gooey but well worth it! 5 stars

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". 5 stars
