Chocolate Oat Bars

A recipe from my friend Betsy. She had these out one night when we came over for dinner. I don't know how many I ate before dinner even started....

  • 2 c. quick cooking oats
  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. chopped pecans
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 c. butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 1/2 c. chocolate chips or M&M's
  • 1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  1. Combine first 6 ingredients. Mix in butter until crumbly. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of this mixture. Press remaining mixture into lightly greased 10x15-inch jellyroll pan. Bake to 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool.
  2. Microwave 1 cup chocolate, stirring at 30 second intervals, until melted. Stir in condensed milk. Spread over crust leaving a 1/2-inch border. Combine reserved crumb mixture and reserved 1/2 cup chocolate. Sprinkle over chocolate mixture that is spread on the crust.
  3. Bake 18-20 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool before cutting.
