    So good. The only thing I changed was I melted about 1/3 cup creamy PB with the chocolate chips and then spread over the bars. The PB adds a little "extra" and pushes these over the top IMO!  -  03 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Just discovered these this week when the teacher at my son's nursery school had them make a batch. (Testimony to how easy they are!) So sweet, so good. Only difference was her recipe had her sprinkle the chocolate chips over the oat layer when it was still hot, then go back a few minutes later with a spatula and spread them out. Fun to do, and one less bowl to clean. As for the difficulty presenting: she refrigerated them, then broke them into pieces, sort of like almond bark. One bite and we stopped caring what the heck they looked like anyway.  -  03 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Oh so good... I had make a second batch the next day because they went so fast. Easy to whip up, too. I like them chilled in the refrigerator. Mmmm....  -  21 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
