This recipe is amazing! I've made it several times and it has saved me from making trips to Starbucks. To make them even more amazing (yep, didn't think it was possible) I used pure Organic Tahitian Vanilla Extract (generously overflowing the spoon) and my secret to making the fudge: a sprinkle of instant espresso powder in the chocolate mix (1/4 -1/2 teaspoon), just like you would in brownies, coffee enhances the flavour of fudge! <br/><br/>Make sure you press the mixture firmly in the pan (I slightly greased it by rubbing the butter wrapper in the pan), and also when adding the remaining mixture on top of the fudge, I pressed it firmly in to little circles that touch each other on the ends, that way it stays flat and I don't run out. Once it completely cools, cut into small squares (2x2) and freeze them! They taste better the next day when they're completely cooled. ENJOY!
Amazing! I used to purchase them frequently at Starbucks, and now I can make them at home. It's surprising how the taste is exactly the same, even slightly better with the home version! It is true they are better when they are cooled, but even better when they are at room temperature! Thanks for the recipe!
Wonderful! This is the only treat I purchase at Starbucks, and I'm pretty certain I won't be going back there for a long time. The oat fudge bars taste even better the next day after it has cooled. The oat base is delectably chewy. I experienced some crumbling when cutting it but maybe that's just me. Definitely worth trying, and making again! Thank you for the recipe!

Growing up across the street from my Grandmother, who made great comfort food, instilled in me a fearlessness for baking and cooking. I've done a lot more since I've been married, but I'll never forget the pride I had after making my first pie! Thanks Gram, I love you!
