This recipe is super simple, and super delicious. I wrote it down from the back of a package of chocolate chips a while back, and decided to give it a go. I'm having to pace myself so that I don't gobble it all up! It's a simple crust pressed into the bottom of the pan, topped with a chocolate mixture and topped up with the rest of the crumbs from the crust. So easy, and definitely impressive!
Here's the dough all mixed up...
And the chocolate mixture to go on top.
And here are the bars ready for the oven!
Chocolate Oat Bars
-3/4 cup butter, softened
-1 cup brown sugar
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 1/2 cups flour
-1 cup oats
-1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz.) (I used fat free with no detriment)
-1 cup chocolate chips
Cream the butter, sugar, and salt, then mix in the flour and oats until crumbs form. Press 2/3 into the bottom of a 9 x 13'' pan. Microwave the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips together for about a minute, then stir until smooth. Pour over the crust. Top with the remaining 1/3 of the crust crumbs.
Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
And here they are all baked up- yummmm!!
