  2. Combine flour, baking soda, oats and salt in a bowl. 
  3. Cream together brown sugar and butter, and add egg in a mixer.

  9. Once cooled, melt some chocolate in a double boiler. Incorporate a few tbsp of 15% cream as it melts to make a smooth chocolate sauce.
  10. Dip the bars in chocolate and let harden in the fridge and enjoy!
