Dream Bars: chocolatey gooey heaven

30 May 2014

I have shared this decadent recipe with you before.  I made these on the weekend and wanted to update the photos and my previous post simply does not do them justice.  If you need a quick recipe which only uses 1 pan (two if you don't want to give the pan a quick wash for the icing) then this should be your go-to recipe if you need to take something to a friend's house or if you are in need of a chocolate fix STAT.

Think chocolatey-oaty-cocountty (yes, these are all real words in my book) goodness smothered in a silky fudgy icing which then sinks into the bars while still hot, creating a gooey brownie type bar which you just cannot beat.


120g Butter
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons Cocoa
1 tspn vanilla extract
120g Flour
1 tspn baking powder
1/2 cup rolled oats, coconut, bran or a mixutre of these (I used oats and coconut)


Melt the butter, remove from stove and add sugar and beaten egg.  Mix well.
Mix in the dry ingredents to the butter mixture. 
Add vanilla.
Spread mixture in a greased tin or baking dish and bake @ 180 deg for approx. 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the topping.
Melt one tablespoon butter in four tablespoons of boiling water. 
Stir in 1 cup of icing sugar along with 2 tablespoons of cocoa (both sieved).
Mix Well.

Spread over baked mixture while hot.

Go make them now.
You are welcome.
