Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Love this recipe and it was so easy to make. These are delicious! I used only 1-1/2 cups of chips because that’s all I had, but they were still delicious!
These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars were everything I hoped they would be. Chewy, chocolate-y oat goodness in every single bite! I used half semi-sweet chocolate chips and half milk chocolate–craaazzy I know– and they were SOO good. If you don’t already have a fancy treat planned for your special someone this weekend (like raspberry bread pudding or Oreo Cheesecake Bites), these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars will surely be a huge hit!

Raspberry Streusel Bars

Image
I made these yesterday and they’re already gone! Incredibly delicious! I love raspberries and I’ll make these more often for sure. So quick. So delicious. So perfect. Can’t wait to try them with different fruit variations.
Made these raspberry bars for two women I tutor. Didn’t have a chance to refrigerate the bars but just drizzle the icing which did not turn white. The women ate three each and took the rest home. They said it was a keeper and they would be happy to be my ‘guinea pigs” which is a new term for them!

I made a double batch of these in a 9 x 13 pan, and they were wonderful. My crust had a weird consistency, however, so I added more flour to the dough, which worked well. Not sure why, though a cup of butter seems like a lot for 2 cups of flour! I also had extra streusel (saved it for next time!) and didn’t have time to drizzle with the glaze. Definitely a keeper.

Here are my simple raspberry streusel bars with four incredible layers: a buttery shortbread crust, thick raspber…

Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting

Image
I’m making these for sure, they are absolutely beautiful! The frosting is amazing!!! Best buttercream ever! They turned out beautiful and tasted great. The cupcake is heaven with the Nutella. Super moist and almost spongy consistency everyone raved about how they weren’t dry and they didn’t crumble!!!
Made these this afternoon. OMG divine. I did have to cook them about 8 minutes longer in my fan forced oven . I checked them every couple of minutes for the last 8 minutes. Followed the recipe exactly but I only had enough mixture for 12 which is just right. More than enough raspberry frosting which is yum yum. I will decorate with 2 or 3 raspberries if possible as I love the combination of the fresh fruit with the rich cake. Definitely will make again. 

Supremely moist and decadent chocolate cupcakes stuffed with creamy Nutella and topped with fresh raspberry frosting.
