I like my no bakes a little more fudgy than solid, but my first batch (pictured) was good. The second was more to my liking so you decide which preparation works best for you - the fudgy version (uses more evaporated milk) will need to go to the fridge and stay there to be a little easier to handle. And, please be sure you're getting "Quick Cooking Oats" for the plain oatmeal in the recipe....not rolled oats. The texture is totally different and it makes a difference. Enjoy!!
Chocolate Oatmeal No Bakes
2 cups packed light brown sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. canned evaporated milk (2/3 cup)
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. quick cooking oats, uncooked
1 1/2 c. DCD Whole Grain Chocolate Oatmeal
Combine first 4 ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Once boiling, cook an additional 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and oats. Then quickly drop onto wax-paper-lined sheets. Let stand until firm (for 2/3 c. evaporated milk version - put in fridge to firm up). Store tightly covered.
