Caramel Oat No-Bake Cookies

Caramel Oat No Bake Cookies

This time of year, the weather can be so finicky.  One day it seems like fall is on its way and the next, the temperatures skyrocket.  On top of all that, school-sports-activity schedules have turned my days into a whirl.  No bake cookies come in so handy.  They whip together in no time and I don’t have to heat up the house with the oven.  I have managed to amass quite a repertoire of such recipes, but there doesn’t seem to be an end to the flavor and ingredient combinations.  These babies are sweet-to-the-max with brown sugar and butter and caramels boiled together.
