  • Beat 1 cup butter and brown sugar in a large bowl until smooth and creamy. Stir in eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract; mix well. Combine oats, flour, sliced almonds, baking soda, and 1 teaspoon salt in another bowl; stir into butter mixture until batter is just mixed. Spread 2/3 batter into a 10x15-inch rimmed baking sheet.

  • Heat chocolate chips, condensed milk, 2 tablespoons butter, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a saucepan over medium heat until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in remaining 2 teaspoons vanilla extract and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. Spread chocolate mixture into baking sheet over oat batter. Spoon remaining 1/3 oat batter over chocolate.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

Yummy... These bars our easy to make and turned out excellent. They took about 20 minutes to bake in a 350 oven. I waited and added almonds to the remaining 1/3 oat batter and then crumbled the batter on top. My family loved these. Two thumbs up!!! Read More

5 stars. I didn't use the sliced almonds and I will try a 1/4 tsp of almond extract in the fudge mix. They were a hit! Read More
