Here is how I got the recipe. One of the teachers at the school brought a batch of these yummy oatmeal fudge bars to work last month and put a big tray of them by the coffee pot in the teacher’s lounge. We all loved them so much that they were gone before lunchtime! I asked Joanna, the teacher who made them, for the recipe and here it is for you.
Easy Fudgy Oatmeal Chocolate Bar Recipe
Preheat oven to 350°
Grease a 9 x 13” baking pan
Note: an astute reader noticed that I used a smaller, square baking pan in the photo below. I had split the recipe into two pans to bring to school for a treat for our staff. Two 8X8 pans or one 9X13 works the same!
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups old fashioned oatmeal
1 pkg chocolate chips [12 oz]
1 can sweetened condensed milk [14 oz]
1 tsp vanilla
2 T. butter
Combine everything EXCEPT the last four ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Spoon ½ of the batter into a grease baking pan and press it in with the back of a big spoon.
Combine chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and 2 T. butter.
Heat them in a microwavable bowl until melted.*
*Tip – about 30 seconds at a time.
Spoon the melted chocolate chip batter onto the other in the pan.
Add the rest of the oatmeal batter to the top.
Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.
Run a sharp knife around the outer edge then cool completely.
Cut into squares about 1 – 2 inches.
Clean up time! So, enjoy it? 🙂 ad
