Fudgie Oatmal Marble Bars


A few days ago I made this recipe and somebody on facebook asked for it... but I couldn't find the message to send it. So here it is. I had something similar at a cafe, went mental for them, and tinkered with a few recipes that sounded close til I landed on this one. Enjoy!

Fudgie Oatmeal Marble Brownies

1 cup butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla (2 for each mixture)
2-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 12-ounce package chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or peacans

Reserve 2 tablespoons of the butter.

Blend butter and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla.

In another large bowl combine flour and baking soda; stir in oats. Gradually mix the dry and moist mixtures. Set aside.

In a medium saucepan combine the reserved butter, the sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate chocolate chips. Cook over low heat until chocolate melts, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in nuts and the 2 teaspoons vanilla.

Press two-thirds (about 3-1/3 cups) of the oat mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Spread chocolate mixture over the oat mixture. Using your fingers, dot remaining oat mixture over the chocolate.

Bake @ 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until top is lightly browned (chocolate mixture will still look moist).

Cut bars after cooling and pig out. :)
