TWD - Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars
I enjoy squares so I don't know why I rarely make them. I think it's those layers. Layers mean bowls and bowls mean a messy kitchen. Or maybe it's that they are usually so darn sweet. All that condensed milk and coconut.
Well, this recipe had the condensed milk but paired with lovely dark chocolate. The recipe also calls for raisins. I used giant Thompsons which gave the filling a date bar texture. Dense and satisfying without the tooth-rattling sweetness. Sandwich that between two simple layers of oatmeal and walnuts. We liked it very much. Perfect with milk or a cup of tea!
