2 dozen cookie bars


  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups brown sugar

  • 1 cup margarine

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 3 cups rolled oats

  • ¾ cup butterscotch chips

  • ¾ cup chocolate chips

  • 2 tablespoons margarine

  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  2. Mix flour, brown sugar, 1 cup margarine, eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon baking soda together in a bowl until combined. Stir in oats. Press 2/3 the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.

  3. Melt butterscotch, chocolate chips, and 2 tablespoons margarine in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in condensed milk and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract until smooth. Pour into the baking pan; crumble remaining oat mixture on top.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 25 minutes. Cool for at least 10 minutes. Cut into squares.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute butter for margarine, if desired.

You can use all chocolate chips or all butterscotch chips. I love to mix half and half for the best of both!
