  1. I think Inez must possess a magic hat that she pulls all these winning recipes from! These Fudge Filled Bars, of course, are out of this world! I made as directed, subsituting walnuts for the pecans simply because I had them on hand. The condensed milk was added with the chocolate chips in the saucepan where I also subsituted 2 tbs butter instead of shortening. Once again, as per my usual, I could not wait for these little babies to cool and had to experience them warm! What an experience! A true chcolatety, heavenly delight! I am honored to be the first to review this recipe for you Inez! Once again, my chef's hat is off to you!!
  2. WOW! Five stars is not nearly enough for this recipe, it needs twenty stars. These were incredible! I love chocolate and I love oatmeal so these were impossible to resist.....something like a hot chocolate chip/oatmeal cookie as it comes out of the oven! Anyone that doesn't like these is either a communist or an alien! Caution, must be taken with milk!
  3. Fantastic!! These could definitely be habit forming! Thanks!
  4. Very YUMMY!!! And also easy. Thank you for this recipe, it is awesome!!
  5. Surprisingly easy to make and a huge hit with sweet tooths everywhere. Beware! Too good to share.


  1. These were very good. I subbed whole wheat flour and dehydrated cane juice for the crust. I also used 1 cup heavy whipping cream and coconut oil in place of the sweetened condensed milk and shortening. They're a little less sturdy this way, but still really delicious and easy to eat. They would have been too sweet for us with the sweetened condensed milk.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
