Love these. This is one recipe I had in my waiting list for a long time….I mean really long, say 2 years πŸ™‚ I have adapted this recipe from a lovely book named ”The food and the music Chocolate”, presented to me by my hubby for valentines day. This book is surely music to my ears . I must have flipped over every recipe a zillion times imagining how it would taste πŸ˜€ . Β I I aim to tryout every recipe in this book. But for now , this is it – Β An awesome combination of chocolate , cookies and caramel. It starts with an amazing bar base with oats and ooey, gooey caramel layer and finally chocolate !! This was my first attempt to make these layered bars. And I guess it was quite a success.My son and his friends absolutely loved it. Cut it into bite size pieces for a party and enjoy every bite of it.
