I had to post another dessert recipe. This is goooooooood stuff. I got this recipe from my girl Detective Shel (holla! LOL). Anyway, my other girl Investigator Kat (NOT Kitty Kat) has dubbed this Sin in a Pan. Absolutely correct. And no it is not a typo, there IS that much butter in this recipe! But hey, you can use fat-free condensed milk, that should help the fat grams. Ha ha, yeah, right. This is soooo good, and oh so addicting. But wait! 3 cups of oats? That's healthy, right? I mean, come on, it has to count for SOMEthing, right? Try this. You'll love it. Just make sure to remember it when you pray and ask for forgiveness. Because it is truly sinful. And delicious!
Double Fudge Oatmeal Bars (aka Sin in a Pan)
6 oz chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk (you CAN use fat-free)
2 Tbsp. butter
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
Melt these ingredients together in a saucepan until creamy, and set aside.
2-1/2 cups flour
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups oatmeal
1 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cups softened (or melted) butter (YES! it IS 3 whole sticks!!!)
2 tsp. vanilla
Mix all ingredients together until crumbly. Press half of the dough into a greased 9x13 pan. Pour chocolate filling over the dough. Put remainder of dough over filling to cover. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
This stuff is soooooooooooooooo good. Try it. But exercise some moderation. Because it didn't get it's nickname of Sin in a Pan for nothing. :)
