TWD: Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars
This week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe was Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars, chosen by Lillian of Confectiona’s Realm.
These appeared to be quite popular amongst the TWD crowd and I have to say that I whole-heartedly agree. They were REALLY tasty. And definitely candy bar-ish... chocolatey, chewy, and substantial.
There was a lot of talk on the TWD forum about the raisins, whether to add them, substitute another ingredient, or leave them out all together. (It seems like raisins are among the most-talked-about ingredients, and one of the most disliked... lots of raisin-hate goin' on) I left them in and really didn't notice them that much, but then, I like raisins.
Definitely will make these again. (Although, I say that and I never make anything again, come to think of it. I'm always making something new or trying a different version of the same thing. So, I guess I should say that someday when I'm old and done experimenting, I'll make these again :) )
OK, that's that, and you know the drill from here... if you'd like to see the recipe, stop by Lillian's site, or find yourself a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours".
