TWD- Chocolate Oatmeal Almost Candy Bars

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.

  1. I think they were best out of the fridge, but I didn’t freeze any to compare, just room temp. Yours look great!

  2. Love the idea of the bars being the Goldilocks of the almost candy bars — and yours look great.

  3. I agree – these are perfect straight from the fridge.

  4. Cashews…… favorite….

    Sounds fabulous.

  5. I liked mine best at room temperature! Yours look great!

  6. Cashews sound great — I’ll have to give that a shot sometime. And I can’t imagine having enough left over for the freezer — these went very quickly. Thanks for baking along with me this week!

  7. Yum They look so good! I loved this recipe and Im sure I will make it again!!

  8. My hubby would like them with cashews. I haven’t tried them cold…every time I pick one up to put in the fridge, I eat it! 🙂
