So while pinning some yummy treats I came across this recipe from Love, Life, Lavins: Deep Dish Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie Bars. It made a huge 9 x 13″ pan of dessert so I was waiting for the right time to make it. After being invited to an end of the Summer potluck I knew this was just the event.
This recipe was a cinch to put together, just make sure you give a few hours to cool. Like the original recipe claimed if you cut before it cools the center will run. It took way longer than expected to cool. Don’t worry the fudge never gets hard even after fully cooling.
After tasting this sweet treat I was glad to bring it to an event to share because it is rich. Wonderful but rich, maybe some vanilla ice cream would have taken it to another level. If you like oatmeal cookies and gooey fudge this dessert is for you.
- 1 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1/3 cup milk
- 3 cups oatmeal
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/3 cup margarine or butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream butter, eggs, and brown sugar.
Add vanilla and milk.
Slowly add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix well.
Spread 3/4 of the cookie mixture on the bottom of a greased 9×13″ pan, reserve the remaining cookie mixture to the side.
Meanwhile in a saucepan over medium heat melt together all the fudge ingredients. Melt until well combined.
Pour the fudge mixture on top of the bottom cookie in the pan. Spoon remaining cookie mixture on top of fudge.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until set.
Allow to cool well before slicing to serve.
