The fountain of Youth ~ Chocolate

Okay, so it's not really the fountain of youth, but chocolate always makes me think of being a kid so I was hoping they were connected. Here are a couple of recipes to get us in the mood for Joy's upcoming Chocolate round-up.

4 cups oatmeal
2/3 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 bag milk chocolate chips
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Melt butter and honey together. Add vanilla.
  • Mix oatmeal, salt and brown sugar together.
  • Toss chocolate chips in the oatmeal mixture.
  • Pour butter mixture all over oatmeal mixture and toss until well coated.
  • Press into a 9x13 pan.
  • Bake 25 minutes.
  • Cool 20 minutes and then cut into logs.
1 1/2 cups cake flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1 Jumbo egg
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla

I have never been a huge fan of chocolate something rather a foreign concept to many women. The kids just introduced me to Michel Cluizel chocolate and oh my gosh is that ever good. I think I will be doing a bit more experimenting with chocolate. Thanks for the recipes!

Mmmm... the Chocolate Oatmeal Logs sound very yummy!
I'm definitely going to try them- especially because my son is allergic to eggs and so he can enjoy this treat too!
Thanks for the recipe!
