Fudge Oatmeal Bars

Someone a block up from me was giving away cookbooks a few weeks ago. I’m not sure how much use I have for 101 Things to do with Zucchini, but this Ivy Bake Shoppe Cookbook has several recipes that look worth making!

IMG_6848Ingredients:

Dough:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats

Filling:

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 10 x 15″ jelly roll pan.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar.

IMG_6840Add the eggs, beating until combined, then add the remaining dough ingredients and beat until mixed.

IMG_6842Spread 2/3 of the dough into the greased pan – I used a combo of fingers and a greased spatula. Set aside the remaining dough.

IMG_6843In a microwave-safe bowl, combine all the filling ingredients and microwave for 1 minute. Stir well, then microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir again until smooth, then pour over the dough in the pan and smooth.

IMG_6844Drop the remaining 1/3 of the dough in clumps over the chocolate mixture.

IMG_6845Bake 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.

IMG_6847Let cool a bit, then cut into bars and serve.
