TWD ~ Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars

I could only have a sniff of these little beauties because they are mighty rich in all things high calorie ~ but they are mighty good! I didn't think they were too candy-like but quite capable of satisfying a craving. I halved the recipe, omitted the raisins and tossed in about a 1/3 of a cup of coconut.
If I didn't have the accountability of my fellow challengers, I would be seriously tempted to overindulge with these!
Dorie prefers serving cold or even frozen. We sampled at room temp. I love the oatmeal and chocolate and thought they were just perfect. But off to the freezer they go. I will be serving them Wednesday evening at Bible Study along with a lighter dessert for those more resolved folk.


Great pick from Lillian of Confectiona’s Realm. She will have the recipe posted at her place.

These look great - but I am with you on the calorie count.

Oh Lordy, Lord, those look decadent. Honestly, L, I can't bake and not eat. Consequently, for now, it's better for me not to bake. But oh, those lucky people at the Bible study who are going to scarf down those yummies! Thanks for sharing. Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com
