Oat Fudge Bars

One of the few splurges I still do is Starbucks. There are many days when Kale and I have nothing to do, and so we meander uptown to Starbucks, where I buy myself a drink and oftentimes, a snack. We then meander back home. Since I have started up Chai By Night, I’m feeling somewhat hypocritical in buying a chai from Starbucks, since one of the features and benefits Chai By Night has is the ability to make, like, a gazillion chais (okay, like, eight) for the price of one Starbucks bar drink. So I am trying hard to stop buying chais from Starbucks unless I’m with a friend and going to Starbucks is the social activity. I also have been having a hard time laying down $1.95 for an oat fudge bar, my usual snack of choice, ever since I found a recipe that makes a knockoff Oat Fudge Bar. I posted it to my Facebook page when I found it and had no less than 4 people all make it and tell me how delicious it was, so I thought I would post it here. 

Oat Fudge Bars

1 Cup butter or margarine
2 Cups packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. real vanilla
3 Cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 14-ounce can (1-1/4 cups) sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1. Set aside 2 Tbs. the butter. Beat the butter with mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar; beat until well mixed. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another large bowl stir together flour and baking soda; stir in oats. Gradually stir dry mixture into beaten mixture. Set aside.

2. In a medium saucepan combine the 2 Tbs., the sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate . Cook over low heat until chocolate melts, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.

3. Press two-thirds (about 3-1/3 cups) of the oat mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 15×10×1-inch baking pan. Spread chocolate mixture over the oat mixture. Using your fingers, dot remaining oat mixture over the chocolate.

4, Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 25 minutes or until top is lightly browned (chocolate mixture will still look moist). Cool on a wire rack. Cut into 2×2 inch inch bars. Makes about 36 bars.

I should also add one last step. HIDE. Because holy hannah these are some yummy bars.

  1. Your chai is way better too! I can’t stand the one from Starbucks. Blech.

    “London Fog” at Starbucks isn’t too bad if you want something warm but that isn’t coffee but it’s got nothing on the “East Van Fog” that I get at a small neighborhood place.

  2. Yowza! Looking at the ingredients list, there is no way those bars could NOT be delicious! I, too, reserve Sbux for outings with friends so my mini-escape some days is to hit the Tim Horton’s a few blocks from my house and grab a steeped tea. Shamefully, I often drive there to do this, and then go for a cruise along the river; it’s way less work and therefore more of a break to have the kids all strapped in and contained! 😉

  3. yum! salt, sugar, Caffeine!!!

    someone please enjoy some of these treats for me..
    as I can not 🙁
