excellent but rich

A nice change from chocolate but pretty rich. I may cut back on the amount of white chocolate chips next time. Also, I had to bake it for an extra few minutes to be sure the oat topping was cooked. Very good!

This is one of the few bars I take anywhere, I've been asked for the recipe by non-bakers because these would be worth it.

The Best

by A. Amanda , LEBANON, OR on Jun. 2008

These bars are the best I have ever tasted. I am going to be selling them at my bake sale and I know they will go really fast. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Great Taste

by D. Donna , AUBURN, WA on Jun. 2008

These bars were easy to make and taste fantastic. They are very high in calories so although the recipes says it is for 36 bars, I find that you could cut each of those bars into 2 pieces. They wouldn't last longer, but those who are satisfied with one piece will be leaving the other half for someone else.
