Oatmeal Fudge Bars

2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter (softened) plus 2 tablespoons
2 eggs
3 cups quick oats
2 1/2 cups self rising flour
12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 small can sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350*. In a medium bowl cream together 2 cups brown sugar, 1 cup butter (softened), and 2 eggs. In a a large bowl, sift 3 cups oats and 2 1/2 cups self rising flour. Add creamed mixture to dry mixture. You will have to use your hands to really get it mixed well. In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt chocolate chips, 2 tbs butter, and condensed milk. Add 2 tsp. vanilla once mixture is finished melting.

Line the bottom of a 9X13 or 2-8X10 dishes with aluminum foil. Crumble and press 1/2 of the oatmeal mixture in the bottom of dish . Pour fudge mixture over bottom oatmeal layer. Crumble and press remaining oatmeal mixture on top of fudge layer. Bake at 350* for about 20 min. Top will start to brown when done. Allow bars to cool COMPLETELY before cutting!! If you cut before they are completely cool, you will have a mess! I allowed mine to cool overnight.

These are delicious and really easy to make!! I got the recipe from my friend Jennifer Anderson.
