Baby Ruth Candy Brownies

The name of this recipe is misleading. These are not brownies at all. I was expecting the base to be like a brownie when I pulled it out of the oven. It was a soupy, bubbling mess. I considered calling it quits at this point, but I continued. The topping spread with ease over my "oatmeal soup," and the whole thing firmed up nicely in the refrigerator. They were tasty, but very dense and a bit messy to eat. (My kids hands were covered in melt-y chocolate when they were done eating!)
