I’m sure there are plenty of fun and fancy ways to add coconut and almonds to fudge. But seriously, I was having one of those what-can-I-throw-together-in-5-minutes kind of days. And it worked out perfectly!
I told my kids they have no imagination when it comes to cold cereal. All they do, day in and day out, is pour it in a bowl and cover it with milk. To prove my point, I turned my box of Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds into a crust for these cheesecake bars.
Can I make a confession? I don’t like oatmeal. Never have. There is not enough sugar in the world to make otherwise delicious oats actually taste good when they are cooked.
The book says it’s called a visiting cake because you can see your neighbors coming up the road, and throw this cake together before they get to the front door. It’s just about right, too. This thing was easy like Sunday morning.
