I know this is not really a “craft” but so many people ask me for this recipe that its just easier for me to post and then send them here 🙂 My kids LOVE these. There are perfect for potluck.
This recipe tastes very similar to Starbuck’s Oat Fudge Bar. Very yummy!
1 Cup butter or margarine
2 Cups packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. real vanilla
3 Cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 14-ounce can (1-1/4 cups) sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1. Set aside 2 Tbs. the butter. Beat the butter with mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar; beat until well mixed. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another large bowl stir together flour and baking soda; stir in oats. Gradually stir dry mixture into beaten mixture. Set aside.
2. In a medium saucepan combine the 2 Tbs., the sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate . Cook over low heat until chocolate melts, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
3. Press two-thirds (about 3-1/3 cups) of the oat mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Spread chocolate mixture over the oat mixture. Using your fingers, dot remaining oat mixture over the chocolate.
4, Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 25 minutes or until top is lightly browned (chocolate mixture will still look moist). Cool on a wire rack. Cut into 2×2 inch inch bars. Makes about 36 bars.
