quick cooking oats
light brown sugar
light corn syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons
semisweet chocolate chips, melted
Four stars for the original, FIVE for this recipe with the following modifications:
- butter instead of oil (yum, why wouldn't you?)
- four minutes extra in the oven
- milk chocolate melted on top
- half an hour in the freezer before cutting
Very sticky and sweet. I won't make again.
Yum! I like using oats in cookies and squares, and these were great! I omitted the nuts (didn't have any), but otherwise pretty much followed the recipe. I have made two batches, and both turned out well. I used foil to line the pan (makes for easy removal of squares), but remember to grease/spray the foil! Otherwise, as in my second batch, the squares will REALLY stick to the foil. Also, I didn't bother melting the chocolate chips separately: I sprinkled them on the top of the squares when there was two or three minutes left in the baking time and then smoothed the chocolate evenly with a knife. Stick them in the fridge awhile, cut, eat! Delicious! Thanks, Josh!
I really enjoyed these but hubby wasn't too fussy on them (thought they tasted like they weren't cooked enough). I used butter, not oil, and omitted the nuts. Placed greased tinfoil in my pan and that made a world of difference. Before they finished cooking I sprinkled some chocolate chips on top and stuck it back in the oven. When the timer went off I used a butter knife to spread the chocolate out. Threw the whole pan in the freezer for an hour. Took them out and used a greased, sharp knife to cut into bars and then threw them back in the freezer. I'm leaving them in there and just grabbing one out when I want it.
I LOVE toffee. I have made at least 5 different toffee recipes. This was not among my favorites. I love oatmeal too, so I thought this recipe had potential. Sadly, to me it just came out too chewy and did not have the toffee flavor I sought.
As written, 4 stars. With these changes, five: 1) I used 1/3 cup melted butter instead of oil 2) I lined my pan w/ foil sprayed w/ nonstick spray 3) Used closer to 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips and added a few splashes of milk to them after melting and then stirred. Made a delicious icing that wasn't too sweet! 4) Put pan in freezer for 30 min after baking for 14 minutes instead of 12 5) Used pecans instead of walnuts Thanks so much! GREAT base recipe!
Yummy!! and so easy. I have a similar recipe that uses graham crackers as the base, these were chewy and delicious. Competition for the other recipe for sure..can't stop eating them, so make a lot..Thanks for the recipe
Yum! I definitely suggest refrigerating these over night before eating them..they taste sooo much better the next day. The only change that I made to the recipe was to sub melted butter for the 1/3 c vegetable oil. Deeee-lish! :~)
