  3. In a medium saucepan, heat sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons butter, and 1/2 teaspoon salt over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in walnuts and 2 teaspoons vanilla.
  4. Pat 2/3 of the oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread chocolate mixture evenly over the top, and dot with remaining oat mixture.
  5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in preheated oven. Let cool on a wire rack, then cut into bars.

I dont know what the hype is about. I ended up throwing away all but the 1 piece each my family tried. Too heavy. Just okay.

These were a great change from the standard bar cookie. I have made them twice, but the second time I used a bar pan (I think it is 15 x 2). I poured the entire oatmeal mixture on the bottom a...

My mom made these from her recipe from the 1970's for Christmas this year. What a hit! She made hers in a jelly roll pan which makes a big difference. Once they're cut, keep them in a cookie ...

These were delicious. I took them to an outing and everyone loved them. I did make one mistake that ended up making them taste even better. I accidentally put about 1/4 cup of the sweetened c...

These are very rich and tasty bars. The oatmeal layer could probably be reduced by half for the 13x9 pan-- it was thick and a little dry. Perhaps next time I will add less oatmeal. Also, I sprin...

Very tasty. At first I thought it might be too crunchy but turns out a little chewy. I decrease the amount of sugar and just used 1 3/4 for the dough portion. As for the fudge part, I find it ...
