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!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Combine 1 cup butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and eggs in a large bowl; mix until smooth.

  • Mix flour, baking soda, and oats together in another bowl. Add to the butter mixture slowly; mix using an electric mixer until combined.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Drop tablespoons of remaining oatmeal mixture over the fudge. Press oatmeal down lightly to flatten and swirl into the fudge.

  • 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 Read More

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 with foil. I made it two weeks ago and hubs just asked me to make more. This is not good for my calorie intake.;-D Read More

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 sweet and a bit too soft. If I were to do it again I would probably try reducing the condensed milk by 1/4 C to see if that's more to my liking. My roommate thought it was perfect though! Read More

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. Read More

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 bake it way longer than 30 minutes as it just wasn’t getting baked all the way through. I baked it about 40-50 minutes. And let it rest in the baking dish at least 10 minutes before trying to remove it to a cooling rack otherwise it falls apart. Very delicious. Read More
