These were great !! Enjoyed by all of us, especially the kids. I used chocolate chips, evaporated milk, and white chocolate chips. I agree with Toni that it have a beatuful glaze. Will be making this again. Made for Aus/NZ swap#32.
Completely decadent! These little morsels were the hit of a recent office potluck...(I had started a new job one Monday, potluck Friday) The first time I used milk chocolate chips, today I plan on butterscotch. Thanks for the recipe PaulaG
Wasn't sure what rating to give these - for me they were a little sweet but the kids just loved them and they went quickly at a bake sale this morning. The cookie is a lovely combination of a chewy oat layer that is not sweet with a fudge-like topping that has just a hint of maple. (BTW: I used maple extract, not maple syrup since I think that's what was intended - used just 1 teaspoon). The top layer has a beautiful sheen that makes them quite attractive. I skipped the nuts as we have kids with allergies. Thanks Paula.
