Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Fudge Bars are such a good dessert you are not going to be able to control yourself.  The buttery oatmeal crust is so delicious. Oh and did I mention the dark chocolate fudge center, and oatmeal crumbs on top.  I poured myself a nice glass of milk and had one, but I couldn’t resist a bite of another.  Plus, this recipe is super easy.  The dough ingredients just get mixed in a mixer and the fudge gets made in the microwave.  It’s a piece of cake. 2 bowls and a Pyrex, that’s it!

The Dough

1 cup Salted Butter- Softened

2 Cups of Brown Sugar

2 Whole Eggs- Beaten

3 Cups Old Fashioned Oats

2 ½ Cups All Purpose Flour

3 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

½ Tsp. Salt

1 Tsp. Baking Soda

For the Fudge Middle

2 Cups of Dark Chocolate Chips

14 oz. Can Sweetened Condensed Meal

2 Tbsp. Butter

2 Tsp. Vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 13 x 9 pan with parchment and spray well with non stick spray.  In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment cream the butter and brown sugar. Add in the eggs, the oats, the flour, vanilla, salt and baking soda and combine until well mixed.  

In a glass bowl put the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter. Put the bowl in the microwave and heat for 1 minute.  Remove and stir, return to the microwave and heat for another 45 seconds.  Make sure the butter is melted and add in the vanilla and mix.  Pour this over the top of the first layer.  Make sure it is evenly spread over the top of the layer.  Then using your fingers crumble the remaining dough on top of the fudge.  Spread it out evenly.  Bake for about 30 minutes.  The top should be golden brown. Cut into squares and serve
