If you are expecting a crowd of over-nighters this holiday week-end like we are, then you will need to be prepared with lots of food on hand. I made this dessert for my husband to take to a picnic last week for our bicycle club, and he came home with an empty plate. Either they were a hit, or he loaded up on the leftovers during his drive home. This will be an easy way to prepare a treat to eat as a dessert or to have on-hand for snacks. Either way, this recipe will be a hit.
1 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 egg yolks
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used coconut instead).
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix 1 cup butter, sugars, and egg yolks. Measure flour and add to mix along with oats. Spread in greased and floured 13 x 9 inch pan. Bake 20 minutes. Cool 10 minutes.
Melt chocolate and butter over hot water. Spread over cooled bars. Sprinkle nuts (or coconut) on top. Cut into bars.
Well, friends, we hope the Easter bunny finds you this week-end. Have a good one.
