This awesome recipe was one that I my Mom used to make for Christmas Bazarres years ago. She was known for your fabulous baked goods. People would order in advance so that they didn't have to bake at Christmas time.
Combine brown sugar, butter and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute
Pour over nuts, oats and vanilla.
Drop by teaspoonfuls on wax paper and cool.
For chocolate drops, use 2 cups white sugar and 1/2 cup cocoa. You could also add peanut butter and/or chocolate chips, carob chips, coconut, etc. to the oatmeal/nut mixture before pouring the hot sugar liquid over.
