I made these bars for a Christmas party and used white chocolate chips. They were delicious! I would like to make them again and try with the semi-sweet chocolate. These made a large batch and had a delicious and unique taste. Anyone who like cranberries would enjoy this recipe.

Yummy,except oatmeal "flakes" didn't all blend in during cooking process. Wonder why?? -- Seems as tho' the bars should be refrigerated after they have cooled.--- Has anyone added nuts? Has anyone frozen them?
