Wow, I feel like I haven’t posted in forever! I’ve been on sort of a forced hiatus from baking as I was out of town for ten days (Vail and then Tucson), came home and a week later was off to an amazing wedding in New Orleans. What a fabulous few weeks! But alas I am home (for a while at least…) and can get back to some experimenting in the kitchen.
This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, chosen by Lilian of Confectiona’s Realm, was a most delicious way to break the dry spell! I stuck to the recipe which just one exception – I am not a big raisin and chocolate person (nope, never understood Raisinettes), so instead I mixed in just under a cup of sweetened coconut with the chocolate. I did also dig in a wee bit early, and found – just like Dorie said – that these are better cold right out of the fridge. YUM.
I may consider next time making a thinner layer of chocolate too because I really liked the oatmeal base. But I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
