I have tasted the caramel filling and it is good!

Last night I tried the Samoas Bar recipe that I've been eyeing. Basically, you make a shortbread crust and let that cool. Then toast coconut and use that to make a caramel filling to spread on the shortbread. Once that has cooled, cut it into bars and dip the bottom in chocolate and finally drizzle chocolate on top. DH was in charge of the chocolate portion.

DH and I split one last night after the chocolate had hardened and DH pronounced it "a winner."

While waiting for all that cooling to take place, I went ahead and tried another recipe that I had an eye on -- M&M Oat Bars.   I thought that the recipe looked interesting and I am always on the lookout for nut-free items since they are easier for my grandfather to eat.
