Oatmeal Fudge Bars

When I was going through my Cooks Country Chocolate Desserts Magazine, I knew I was going to make this recipe. It looked so good and easy and I had all of the ingredients that I needed, so, when I made them, I was not disappointed. And neither were the other parents and kids who enjoyed these crispy, oatmeal fudge bars.

Now, the recipe calls for Quick Oats, but I just had Old Fashion Oats. The magazine said that the Quick Oats created more of a chewy crust and crumble while the Old Fashion Oats resulted in a more crunchy and crumbly crust. Either way you make them, they are delicious!

Layers of oatmeal cookie and a fudgy filling that is delicious and a wonderful treat.

I loved all the extra crumbs that flaked off! They were so tasty! I was gobbling them up while cutting them. I think it would be great to just make the crust on a cookie sheet and break it up as an ice cream topping!

What a great dessert these bars were. I took them to a pot luck and shared them with some hungry kiddos who gobbled up these bars and loved every bite. I hope that you make them and love them as much as we did!
