TWD Chocolate Oatmeal Almost- Candy Bars

I am officially a member of Tuesdays With Dorie. I have loved Dorie's cookbook 'Baking from My Home to Yours' for quite sometime. I enjoy her fun writing style, it is almost like she is in your kitchen coaching you along. Her recipes are some of the best I have made in my 45 year baking adventure!

 Chocolate Oatmeal Almost-Candy Bars was chosen by Lilian at Confectiona's Realm she will post the recipe. I have just one word for these bars--delicious! It is a fudgy oatmeal cookie with peanuts. This cookie bar was easy to put together, the most difficult task was trying to get the lid off the sweetened condensed milk. I think I need a new can opener.
The recipe makes a 9x13 pan, yes that is a lot of rich treats. I'm excited to share them with my Mom, my hairdresser, my neighbors and I think I will send a few to our missionary son. These bars are great chilled or at room temp. I have sampled them both ways (several times).  They are loaded with oatmeal so I thought a taste for breakfast must be a good thing. It was.
This is a 5 star recipe, I will make them again, soon. Check the TWD Blogroll and see what other bakers thought of this treat.

I used to make something like this growing up, but without the peanuts. It looks really good.

Yours came out beautifully. I made mine without the condensed milk and they came out fine.

They are quite a treat. I am sure all the people you are sharing with are smiling more, now.
