Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars

This week's selection was chosen by Lillian of Confectiona's Realm. These bars were baked in a huge 9x13 pan so there were plenty. The bottom layer is a kind of cookie base with roasted peanuts, oatmeal and a hint of cinnamon. In the middle is melted chocolate chips, butter, sweetened condensed milk, more peanuts and raisins. Finally on top was more of the bottom layer. They baked for around 30 minutes then cooled for almost two hours and then were refrigerated for an hour. I loved these, a little salty with the peanuts and sweet with the fudgy middle layer. For people who hate raisins (I'm not one of those people but I know some) the raisins are nice but not needed so they could be left out. But you do need a glass of milk to drink with these.Thanks Lillian for a yummy selection!

Yours look great next to that tall glass of milk! These are so very dangerous to have around. I sent most off to the hubby's work place to keep me from eating them. :)
