Cowboy Candy Bars

I love browsing recipe sites and this candy bar recipe caught my attention because of the name.  I am a sucker for anything with a cute or unusual name.  Plus, I really wanted some candy, and I figured the oats would make me feel less guilty.

Because, obviously, oats cancel out chocolate, sugar, corn syrup, butter and peanut butter…

It is good with the chocolate and peanut butter top on the oats, but the oats are actually great all by themselves, so I would happily have just the oat layer as a treat.  It is really sweet, so a little goes a long way to satisfy that sweet tooth craving.
