    Chewy, gooey and totally moreish - you won't be able to have just one! An oaty biscuit base is covered with melted dairy toffee and chocolate chips, then with a crumbly topping, before being baked. Cut into slices or mini squares.

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Unwrap the dairy toffees and melt them in a saucepan over medium heat along with the milk. (If using a microwave, use a large, microwave-safe bowl, melt the toffees and milk in the microwave at medium power for 2 to 3 minutes, checking every 20 to 30 seconds.) Stir and set aside.
    3. Melt the butter or margarine and combine with flour, oats, dark brown soft sugar, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
    4. Press slightly more than half of the oat mixture into a greased 28x18cm baking tin. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the mixture, then pour the melted toffees over the chips. Top with remaining oat mixture.
    5. Bake for 20 minutes; cool. Cut into slices.

    Gooey mess. Not sure that the quantity of oats is correct. Straight in the bin and 15 mins trying to rescue my favourite brownie pan.  -  20 Jun 2015


    very nice but I would add more oat mixture next time, maybe 1 and half the ingredients  -  01 Oct 2013


    This is nearly identical to one of my favorite dessert recipes. My technique is a little different, but the basic idea is the same--and really delicious! I spread about 2/3 of the oat mixture in the pan, bake for 12 minutes, then cover with the caramel and a mixture of the leftover oats and the chocolate chips before baking another 15 minutes. This gives a nice firm base to the bar, and a gooey blended top layer! Yum!  -  14 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
