Oatmeal Fudge Bars

For the last four years I have had a good excuse for making so many chocolate desserts. I have made most of the them to send to my youngest daughter and her roommates at school. Sam loves anything chocolate. Of course I never sent her all the desserts that I made.  I always had to keep a few here because I love chocolate just as much as she does and so does her Father. Well time flew by and she is done with school and finished all her exams last Saturday.  She will be graduating in a few short weeks and moving back home by the end of the month. Now she will be my baking partner as we both love to bake and I will not have to pack them up to ship them to Maryland anymore.  She and her roommates loved these bars.  I saw them on Pinterest and these are adapted from        

1 cup butter
2 eggs
2 cups brown sugar
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3-1/4 cups oatmeal
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix butter, eggs and brown sugar in bowl of stand mixer.  Add vanilla and milk.  Slowly incorporate the flour, baking soda, salt and oatmeal.  Mix well.

Spread 3/4 of the cookie mixture in the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 pan.

Make chocolate fudge mixture by cooking over medium heat in a saucepan:  condensed milk, butter, chocolate chips and vanilla extract.  Stir continuously until everything is melted.

Pour chocolate mixture over top of oatmeal mixture.  Drop spoonfuls of the cookie mixture over top of the fudge.  It won't cover the chocolate layer completely.  Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.  I put aluminum foil over the top for the last 5 minutes so the top cookie layer would not get too brown.

Let the bars cool before slicing.
