Oatmeal Fudge Bars

Rated as 4.86 out of 5 Stars

"Crispy top, with an ooey, gooey, chocolaty fudge center. I hope that this turns out as well for you as it does for me! I place a large piece of aluminum foil or a cookie sheet under my 9x13-inch pan, as it can sometimes get a little bit of overflow. Worth the little bit of mess!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine 1 cup butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and eggs in a large bowl; mix until smooth.
  3. Mix flour, baking soda, and oats together in another bowl. Add to the butter mixture slowly; mix using an electric mixer until combined.
  4. Spread 3/4 the oat mixture into an ungreased 9x13-inch baking pan using a spatula. Press lightly into the bottom of the pan to make the surface even.
  5. Combine chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, 1/3 cup butter, and vanilla extract in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir until melted and smooth, about 2 minutes. Pour fudge over the oatmeal base and spread evenly.
  6. Drop tablespoons of remaining oatmeal mixture over the fudge. Press oatmeal down lightly to flatten and swirl into the fudge.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is lightly browned, 25 to 30 minutes; the chocolate should still be moist. Cool completely on a wire rack, about 45 minutes. Cut into squares.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Quick-cooking oats work well in this recipe.
  • You can use mini chocolate kisses in place of the chocolate chips.

Super easy... made to take to church. I line the pan with foil to lift the whole thing out to cut into bars... made it a little easier to get nice clean cuts

Very yummy. I made it with parchment paper lining and added about an extra half teaspoon of vanilla. Also, I recommend adding some salt (half teaspoon?) as it seems it could us it. I also had to...

I lined with parchment paper and pressed the oatmeal base up the side of the pan about a half inch to contain the filling. Even using semi-sweet chocolate I found the chocolate filling a bit too...

OMG! My husband said this was dope, it was so decadent and delicious. Like one of the other reviewers, I used dark brown sugar and it was fine. I also liked the suggestion to line the pan wit...

Delicious! Taste similar to a chocolate novak. I used dark brown sugar and they turned out ooey-gooey in the center with a nice chewy base.
