In an attempt to expand my baking horizons, I made Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal Squares. The recipe came from my small-batch book. While the portion was great, the squares were just "good." I used too many chocolate chips for the inside layer and the topping. And, the chocolate chips were only melted--nothing added. There's a reason why chocolate chips aren't used straight for frosting--they get so hard it's difficult to bite. And, you can't see it in the pictures, but there's a pre-baked oatmeal crust (that's made from the same stuff as the topping), because it's pre-baked and then baked again with everything on top, I believe it became too crispy. But, the combination of oatmeal, raspberry, and chocolate was so good that I just may try these again and tweak the recipe.
You know the drill: scroll through these photos quickly and the oatmeal squares practically put themselves together!
