Fudge Nut Bars are one of two ways my husband eats oatmeal. The other way is with No Bake Cookies.
This weekend I made a batch to help out with a fundraiser event for a family at our church since some finger goodies were needed. It makes a good amount, so I kept the top and bottom edges for us, while sharing the "good" stuff with the others.
1 cup butter, softened
2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick oats
Beat together butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Then mix and add flour, soda, and salt. Then mix in oats. Dough will be sticky!
1 cup sweetened condensed milk (14 oz can)
1 tablespoon butter
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
Melt together over low heat.
Optional-add 1 cup chopped nuts, if desired.
Spread 2/3 of dough in 11x15 jelly roll pan. I need to use my hands to do it, (and remember the dough is sticky). Spread chocolate mixture on top. Crumble remaining dough on top. Some chocolate will show.
Bake 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.
When cooled, cut into bars. My bars are usually 1x2 inches...give or take. These freeze great! If you have any questions, please just ask!
