Sweet-tooth? Never how I've been described - lol. I am the true meaning of that word! I do love my sweets, especially chocolate and mix that with a cookie base and I'm really digging it:) So, here's an easy recipe for your holiday baking - oatmeal cookie base, chocolate fudgy middle, a crumble on top and a healthy sprinkle of m & m's. Not sure what else I can say about these bites of delishishness (even a word?) except - you're welcome;)
Oatmeal Fudge Bar
In a bowl, combine and mix together, breaking up the chunks of b. sugar. 1 1/2 c. quick oats 1 1/2 c. flour (spooned into measuring cup) 1 c. b. sugar 1 tsp. b. soda 1/2 tsp. salt
Add to the above, and mix together - will be crumbly. 3/4 c. melted butter
Take out 1/2 c. of the oat mixture for the topping.
Press the rest of the oat mixture into a parchment lined 9x12 (or close to that size) baking dish (hint - put a smear of butter onto the bottom of your pan, cover with your parchment paper - this keeps it from sliding and the parchment paper makes taking your bars out of the pan so much easier) You can bake this without parchment, just grease your pan.
2nd layer In a microwave safe bowl, or in a saucepan melt together until smooth 1 can sweetened condensed milk 1 c. semi sweet chocolate chips 1/3 c. butter
Pour over the oatmeal base
Crumble the 1/2 cup of oatmeal base that you saved over the top.
Sprinkle with m&m's (about 1 - 1/2 c. or 1 package of the Christmas colored m & m's)
