Baking was pushed aside for the past couple of weeks as I attempted to "be good" and stay away from most carbs.
I fought the carbs and the carbs won.
Let the baking begin!
So I decided to try this recipe that I've had for a very long time, but have never made myself
(however a friend would make these bars and they did not disappoint).
Go ahead and make them, pour yourself an ice cold glass of milk and enjoy!
Beware! You can't eat just one (but really should due to the huge amounts of butter).
Fudge Oatmeal Bars
Mix 2 C. packed brown sugar, 1 C. of soft butter or margarine, 2 eggs and 1 tsp vanilla together first. Then stir in 2 1/2 C. flour, 1tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt and 3 C. oatmeal.
After mixing all of the ingredients take 2/3 of the dough mix and gently press it down evenly in the bottom of a greased jelly roll pan.
Set aside and make the fudge mix:
Heat over low heat 12 oz of chocolate chips and 14 oz sweetened condensed milk until chocolate is completely melted and mixed well with the milk. Then add 2 tbsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp salt.
pour and spread the fudge mix over the first layer of dough. Then take the rest of the dough and randomly spoon over the fudge layer.
Bake at 350 degree F for 25-30 minutes. When bars are cool cut into triangles.
