This is a fabulously easy traybake recipe, which is great for cake sales or lunchboxes. An oatmeal cookie-esque base is topped with melted chocolate, then cut into squares.
This recipe ROCKS! There's just something about chocolate and cinnamon...mmmm! The only thing that I do differently, is instead of bothering with melting the chocolate in a container, I just sprinkle the top of the pan with the chips and put the pan back into the oven for a minute or two until the chips are spreadable. - 04 Oct 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This got great reviews from my friends; however, the chocolate was too messy. I had to refridgerate it in order to cut the cookie into bars. Unfortunately, because it was a very hot weekend I had to put the left overs in the refrigerator and the cookie becomes stale, not to mention that chocolate should not be refridgerated. I'll try this again, only next time I'll stir the chocolate chips into the batter before baking and not on top. - 21 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yum - I think I'd cut the chocolate by half next time. I like my chocolate but it's a lot. It didn't quite temper so it's sort of like gooey frosting, but it's delicious. I think these would be great with some peanut butter or peanut butter chips in them. Or maybe peanut butter chips swirled with melted chocolate chips for the topping. Really good overall! - 24 Apr 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
