Hi sweet readers ♥
The weekend is almost here and just in time to share a delicious recipe for this gooey oatmeal bar with dark lush chocolate and crunchy almond caramel on top.
This is the kind of candy bar that you just can’t get enough of, and you might not want to share with others, ( just saying)
These bars are best eaten when they keep cold, so keep them in the refrigerator until you serve these.
