I accidentally came across this video on YouTube making Chantilly bars. I really don’t have any idea what it taste like so I search more about this kind of dessert unfortunately there were only few post about it. One blogger says it is mind blowing dessert and that makes me more interested and eager to try it. The video on YouTube didn’t give the complete details on how long and what temperature of the oven I could bake it so I just followed the procedure here Kookie Cooks!
The verdict, well as it was my first time to taste it honestly I don’t like it 😦 . I mean maybe because I don’t usually eat oatmeal and I think that would be my normal reaction as the dessert is not familiar with my taste buds too, but after eating it a few days I think I have come to like it somehow specially if eaten with hot coffee. My husband likes it too and our family friend had the chance to eat it too and she said it’s yummy. So if you are an oatmeal lover then maybe this dessert is for you 🙂 My husband is allergic to nuts so the other one has no toppings. 🙂
Ingredients for the bar:
2 1/2 cup flour
3 cups oatmeal
1 Tbsp baking soda
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter (1 bar)
3 pieces eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
pinch of salt
for the filling
1/4 cup hot water
1 cup cocoa
1 can condensed milk
1/2 cup butter
chopped cashew nuts & peanuts for toppings
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
- Greased the baking pan with butter.
- In a medium sized bowl, cream the butter and sugar ,
- Add the eggs one at a time . Set aside
- In another bowl mix the flour,baking powder,baking soda, and salt.
- Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter-sugar-egg mixture until fully incorporated.
- Lastly, pour the oatmeal into the mixture. Fold in the oatmeal cup by cup as the batter gets thicker and harder.
For the filling:
In a pot mix the cocoa ,water and condensed milk . Cook in medium heat for about five minutes. Turn off the fire and add the butter.
- Pour half of the oatmeal batter in the baking pan and flatten it using a spatula.
- Make sure that the entire bed of the pan is covered with the batter.
- Pour the filling as the second layer. Set aside about a tablespoon of mixture for decoration.
- Tilt to each corner for an equal distribution.
- Here’s the tricky part, putting the remaining oatmeal batter flat on the top layer.
- Used the palm of your hands to flatten it.
- Get a about a tablespoonful of the batter at a time and press it against your palms.
- You don’t normally get an exact shape and size to cover at least one eighth of the pan.
- You really need to be patient until you get it all covered up.
- Sprinkle peanuts on top.
- Get the remaining cocoa mixture and just drizzle it around the pan.
