"I was originally going to give this 4 stars based on my preference, but after taking it to my sons school and all the teachers asking for the recipe, It deserves 5 stars. TY"
"Very good. I spread the baked bottom crust with crunchy peanut butter which added some extra flavor. I have had these with M&M's on top of the chocolate mixture, and I am going to try that next time, since it was sooo good. Make sure you don't bake too much."
"EXACLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR! We used to have these at our church pot-lucks and it seems that they were ALWAYS there and ALWAYS good!! thanks JodiGirl!!"
"This was really good, not amazing. Maybe it just wasn't the right kind of bar cookie I was looking for."
"These bars were loved by ALL in my family (husband, two daughters and myself). I cut the recipe in half and cooked it in a 11"x7" brownie pan. I asked hubby what he would rate it on a scale of 1 to five, he said 4 1/2 since he said nothing is ever perfect *lol*, well, I'm rating it a five since it really was outstanding. It will be made again and is in my tried and true recipe book :-). The only thing I changed is that I omitted the walnuts since we don't like them (unfortunately, I'm sure the texture of the walnuts is good in this recipe!)."
"These are very yummy. It was a big hit with everyone. The chocolate in the middle is more like a fudge and tates fantastic. These very easy and fun for the kids. Thanks."
"So yummy and sinful. My friends and family loved it so much. It's the most requested. Thank you for sharing this recipe."
"These are totally awesome! I can't remember how many times I have printed out the recipe--I have to keep giving it away. I use 1 tsp. Haitian vanilla in the dough and the rest regular so the "real" vanilla isn't too overpowering. These are currently my favorite! Thanks for the great recipe, thatJodigirl!"
"Oh my gosh, these are easy, and sinful. Very rich, you can only eat one! yeah yeah yeah.... I used butter and a 9 X 13 inch pan. I also used 2 t of Mexican Vanilla"
"Really good bars!! I took these to a SuperBowl party tonight and everyone was going nuts over them...especially the men (like one other reviewer mentioned). One recommendation is to make these hours before serving. They need to set a bit, in my opinion. These are a keeper in my recipe file. Thanks! "
"My husband LOVED LOVED LOVED these! My kids (who I thought would go nuts over these, have said no??) Not sure why, but that just means more for my husband and myself!!! I have frozen these (and take a few for the day in the morning). I used a 10x15 dish and there was PLENTY!! Thank you for a fantastic recipe that will be used for many years!!"
"I have made these many times over the past month or so since I fisrt tried the recipe. Everytime I make them, someone new tries them and I have to make more and more and more. I have made them both with and without nuts (sadly some people don't care for nuts), and they get rave reviews regardless! I prefer to use the coarser, long-cooking oatmeal because I feel it gives a nuttier flavor. Bar cookies are my favorites to make, and this cookie is supreme! Many thanks from me, my family and my friends!"
"These are very good. I used a 9 X 13 pan and it was perfect."
"These oatmeal bars are soooo delicious! Very easy to make and with a yield of 4 dozen they will serve a crowd. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing. "
"These are FABULOUS!! They stay nice and soft. Men really like these!! They are rich and make alot so...don't be stingy-SHARE!! They kind of remind me of Betty Crocker's boxed Fudge Jumbles that you could buy in the 80's. Yooper you know a good thing when you taste it!!"
