This one was the second favorite. It is a recipe out of food and wine and after making the recipe and tasting the bars I would change the way it was made drastically. It feels like one of the recipes where they take a banquet size recipe and reduce it to family portions but the actual end result didn't come out just right. For example the bottom was really hard, so next time I won't cook it first. The dulce de leche and chocolate layer did not cover enough especially on the top layer. I would definitely use more of each next time. Either way though, they all were eaten happily.
|such a product placement shot, I am not even going to say what they are|
|mix your salt,, flour, and baking soda|
|stir in your oats and sugar|
|then cut in your butter|
|crush your pecans and stir flour into the dulce de leche|
|start with a layer of oat mix (pre-baked here, but next time I won't)|
|then add half of chocolate chips, pecans, and dulce de leche (note I'm doubling these next time)|
|then top with rest of the oat mix and the rest of the chocolate chips, pecans, and dulce de leche|
|bake thirty minutes, cool, cut and serve|
Apparently a ladybird favorite.
