Oatmeal Chocolate Fudge Bars, creamy chocolate fudge sandwiched between layers of old fashion oats, nuts, brown sugar, along with a few other ingredients.
Oatmeal chocolate fudge bars, the chocolate fudge center is made with sweetened condensed milk, butter, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
I have always had a soft spot for oats and chocolate. These bars are simple to make and would be great for any summer gathering that comes along.
The chocolate fudge is simply delicious and easy to make. There are only 3 ingredients in the chocolate part. Semi-sweet chocolate chips, butter, and sweetened condensed milk. The stuff turns out to be some of the best chocolate fudge you could imagine.
How to make these bars:
Cream together the butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add the eggs and mix until well combined. Mix in the old fashion oats; after they are mixed in, mix in the pecans. Reserve 2 cups of the oat mixture for the topping. To the rest of the oat mixture add the flour and mix in. Pat the rest of the mixture into a greased 9 by 13-inch pan. Bake in a 350 F degree oven for 10 minutes. While the crust is baking make the chocolate fudge. Combine the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter, melt over medium-low heat until melted. Pour the chocolate fudge over the baked crust and then sprinkle the rest of the oat mixture over top. Return the bars to the oven and continue to bake 23 to 25 more minutes.
