My theme for this year is Coffee & Bars (said in the style of Drop Dead Gorgeous). If you haven't watched it, seriously get on that. You're only 15 years behind schedule.
First up are Rochester Bars. They probably have some other official name. Nobody in my family knew what they were called (and presumably brown blobs didn't sound appealing), so my cousin dubbed them "Rochester Bars,'' since that's where we lived at the time. They're ridiculously easy to make, which is basically my unofficial subtheme for this year.
- 2 cups sugar
- 2/3 cup non-dairy milk
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups oatmeal (I used instant because that's what we had on hand but old fashioned oats should work fine too).
- 1 cup coconut flakes
