January 19, 2010– Lillian of Confectiona’s Realm picked Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars, from Baking From My Home To Yours pages 114 and 115 by Dorie Greenspan.
You start with a fairly healthy oat and nut cookie crust (Dorie suggested peanuts, I used cashews). Then you melt condensed milk and dark chocolate add in some more nuts and raisins and crumble some of the reserved base mix on top and bake it for 25 minutes. I made a half batch in a 6×10 pan.
The result is in fact as Dorie suggests similar to a candy bar. I have yet to freeze some to see how I like it best but we shall see. Now go and check out the Blog Roll and see how the other cookie bases crumbled.
