M&M Oatmeal Cookie Bars



Oatmeal Crust and Topping: – 1 1/2 c. oatmeal (quick or old fashioned rolled oats) – 1 1/2 c. all purpose flour – 1 c. brown sugar – 1 tsp. baking soda – 1/2 tsp. salt – 3/4 c. butter, melted – 1 c. M&M chocolate candies, plain (reserved for topping) Fudge Filling: – 1 (14 oz.) can, sweetened condensed milk – 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips – 1/3 c. butter


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x13" pan with non-stick baking spray. Set aside.

Step 2

In a bowl, combine the oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, soda and salt. Mix until combined and the brown sugar has broken apart. Pour the 3/4 c. melted butter into the mixture and mix with a fork until crumbly. Set aside a quarter of this mixture for the topping. Press the remaining oatmeal mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan to form a crust. Set aside.

Step 3

In a microwave safe bowl, add the sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips and 1/3 c. butter. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds and stir until smooth. Chocolate chips should be completely melted. Pour this chocolate mixture over the top of the prepared oatmeal crust.

Step 4

Using the reserved oatmeal mixture, sprinkle this over the top of the chocolate. Sprinkle the M&M candies over the top of the oatmeal mixture.

Step 5

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Once done baking, let the bars cool completely (at least 1 hour) before cutting into squares.
