These are always a hit with my family and friends. I had promised to bring them to the family Thanksgiving reunion. I am so glad to find this recipe since I had misplaced mine which was called "Fudge Jumble Bars" - a Pillsbury Bakeoff recipe I have used for years. Only changes I made was I put the batter into a 10"x17" pan - makes a whole lot more squares. Also dropped the vanilla to 2 teaspoons instead of 2 tablespoons in each part. I didn't put pecans in either. Handy hint - you can cut these while they are still hot if you use a plastic knife. This works for brownies too. It's amazing! Nothing sticks to the plastic. Read More

This recipe used a lot of ingredients (entire box of brown sugar for example). The oatmeal base was good but we did not like the flavor of the fudge layer AT ALL. I would like to find a replacement chocolate layer to use instead. I Hope this helps as I always read reviews before trying a new recipe and have found some really good ones here but this one is the first 5 star no repeat I have encountered. Read More

This recipe is easy and the results were very good. My husband would have liked a more firm chocolate layer but that didn't stop him from devouring half the pan! My only "complaint" is that I think my chocolate craving is cured for another 6 months but I WILL be making this again. Thank you for posting this recipe!! Read More

YUM YUM!! Very fudgy and very good. Someone I served it to asked "Is this chocolate cobbler?" And that is a great description of what this tastes like. It was perfect served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. They freeze great too. Thanks for sharing this receipe! Read More

Huge hit. I didn't have any biscuit mix on hand so I used pancake mix and used only 1 1/2 c brown sugar. I also used rolled oats and no nuts. They turned out perfectly. Also baked them in a cookie sheet. Highly recommended! Read More

Cured my craving for chocolate. Be sure to cool completely like it says if you want to separate them without making a mess. They're gooey! Read More

These were pretty good and very easy to make. They just weren't sweet enough for me. Maybe if I try milk chocolate chips instead of semisweet next time they'll be better. We'll see. Read More
