Melissa’s Rock Buns

Today I received a call from my daughter, who is at University in Glasgow, requesting the recipe for her Great Grandmother Sybil’s rock buns. I have posted the recipe before so you can have a go if you wish. Here is a picture of ┬áMelissa’s efforts. Look scrummy.

So this has been circulating various social networking sites and I thought I would put this $250 recipe down for future reference. Apparently the above mentioned restaurant charged a customer $250 for the recipe without them knowing.

(Recipe may be halved):
2 cups butter
4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups brown sugar
5 cups blended oatmeal (measure oatmeal and blend in blender to a fine powder)
24 oz. chocolate chips
1 tsp. salt
1 8 oz. Hershey bar (grated)
4 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)
2 tsp. vanilla
Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla; mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda. Add chocolate chips, Hershey bar and nuts. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet..Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 112 cookies.. Have Fun!!!
