Have you ever met someone that was difficult to get to know.
You really want to get to know them, but they have this hard crusty shell.
But once you break through, they are just the sweetest people, and you just can not get enough of them.
That is exactly how today’s TWD recipe of Chocolate Oatmeal Almost Candy Bars, that Lillian of Confectiona’s Realm picked for today was.
A thick oatmeal cookie base.
Then a rich chewy chocolate layer, with chopped nuts.
It was supposed to have raisins in the chocolate layer, but ewwwwwwwwww raisins!
Shoot me now!
And then a bit of the base for the top.
It was supposed to have cinnamon in the cookie layer, but I didn’t include it for one reason.
I put Reeses peanut butter chips in the topping, and I didn’t think that cinnamon would go with the theme of chocolate and peanut butter.
This was a fun, quick and easy dessert.
It was fabulous tasting, and I plan on making this again and again.
If you’d like to make these, go check out Lillian’s blog. She has the recipe.
Make sure you have a full glass of milk to drink when you eat these, because they are rich!
