|If this doesn't make you drool I'm not sure what will!|
As much as I strive to be a healthy eater, and as hard as I try to maintain it, I do have my binge moments. Lately, I've wanted nothing more than some ooey-gooey sweetness that my cupboard full of sour cream and onion crackers and chip-wannabes could never come close to satisfying. I'm talking soft and chewy, melt-in-your-mouth, chocolatey goodness.
Thanks to Pinterest (follow me) and a blog by the name of 'One More Moore', I found a recipe for what I consider to be homemade Starbucks Oatmeal Fudge Bars. So, on a pretty mellow Saturday night, my hubby and I brought Starbucks home - he prepped the skinny vanilla's and I prepped the fudge bars.

Oatmeal cookie portion:
- 1 cup Butter
- 2 Eggs
- 1 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 cup Granulated Sugar
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 3 cups Oatmeal
- 1/2 cup Butter
- 3/4 cup Chocolate Chips
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Beat butter until smooth. Add eggs and both sugars, beat until combined and mixture is smooth.
- Next combine flour, baking soda and oats, add to the sugar mixture a little at a time until the mixture becomes thick.
- Spray a 9x13 baking dish and pack 2/3 of the oat mixture into the dish. Place remaining 1/3 aside.
- In the meantime, prepare the chocolate mixture. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Once fully melted add chocolate chips, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk. Keep stirring until the mixture gains a smooth consistency.
- Pour fudge layer over the oatmeal layer. Scatter remaining oatmeal mixture across the top of the fudge layer.
- Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Once out of the oven, allow cookies to cool for at least 1 hour! (This is actually the hardest part of the entire process - make sure you have something to entertain yourself as you wait!)
