I got this recipe from the Cooking During Stolen Moments blog at stolenmomentscooking.com where I have found many wonderful recipes. It is a little complicated but definitely worth the effort and you can cut these bars into very small pieces because they are so rich and delicious and dense! Whenever I bring these to an event I always get asked for the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine all filling ingredients in small saucepan and cook over low heat. Stir occasionally until everything is melted and combined. Remove from heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl cream together sugars and butters until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix until combined.
  3. Stir in flour, 1 1/2 cups oats, baking soda and salt. Work in remaining 1 cup of oats with hands or a spoon.
  4. Reserve 1 1/2 cups oats mixture for the topping.
  5. Press the remaining oats mixture into a greased 13 x 9 baking dish. Pour fudgy filling on top. Crumble reserved oats mixture and sprinkle over the top.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until top is lightly browned. Cool and then refrigerate to firm completely.
