Yikes! It’s been WAY too long since my last TWD post…I apologize to the TWD gods! But here I am, back on the wagon, ready to sing Dorie Greenspan’s praises once more! And these cookies are the perfect way to start. Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars (doesn’t that sound amazing?), chosen by Lillian of Confectiona’s Realm. Oh man, let me tell you..these were outstanding! They start with a layer of oatmeal-peanut cookie dough (delish on it’s own!), then you top it off with a chocolate-sweetened condensed milk-peanut layer and crumble a little more of the cookie dough over the top of that. Bake it off and you have sticky, crunchy, chewy cookie/candy bars! YUM!


Just look at that gooey chocolate center….oh man…. This was such a great recipe to get me back on the TWD wagon- a great treat! I can’t wait to take these babies to work with me sometime! If you’d like the recipe (trust me, you do), head on over to Lillian’s blog and she’ll have it posted for you.




  1. These were so good, I just couldn’t stop reaching into the fridge for “just one more”…geez.

    Your bars look WONDERFUL!

  4. Beautiful.

    My base layer was much thicker than yours.

    Next time I’m gonna try to make it thinner.

  5. The chocolate layer looks so soft and fudgy–this is why I liked mine best at room temperature. Of course, I keep eating them chilled, too! Great photos:)

  8. hi! lovely looking bars.

    here where I live they are called Revel bars. I actually have no idea how it got that name but they are so good who cares right? we often give this as christmas presents to our friends and family.

  9. These were really good, weren’t they? Mine were thicker than yours. I was really excited to make these, which was nice. I like trying new things but sometimes having a hearty bar cookie is just what I want.

  14. I love how your chocolate layer is so thick compared to the oatmeal. Wish mine would have turned out like that.
