TWD: Chocolate Oatmeal Almost Candy Bars

My first TWD for 2010 - Chocolate Oatmeal Almost Candy Bars, choosen by Lillian of Confectiona's Realm. To Alex, Lillian's son, Happy 18th Birthday and congratulations on being accepted at Duke!

I baked these last Sunday when it was rainy and cold and dreary in Atlanta, the perfect pick me up! I used walnuts instead of peanuts since there are readily available in my pantry. For the
recipe, check Lillian's blog, if you do not own Dorie's book yet (I wonder why).

Make sure you visit the other
TWDers and see everyone's handiwork this week.

  1. Your bars look perfect! These are so good. I sent most of them away...can't keep my hands off them. :)

  2. LOVE the prep photos! Those are great! And I like how you sub'd walnuts in - I think they'd be great with cashews too...! Nicely done!

  3. Your bars look delicious! I like your substitution. Beautiful step-by-step photos!
