I first shared this recipe on Penney Lane where I was a contributor. Oatmeal Chocolate Fudge Chewies are amazingly delicious chocolate cookie bars that are easy to make and perfect for feeding a crowd.
My mouth is watering as I write this post. I want one of these Oatmeal Chocolate Fudge Chewies so bad but they’re all gone. Sad day! My awesome aunt introduced me to these addicting cookie bars when I was little and I have now made them way too many times to count. They are way addicting. How could they not be though? We’re talking about a combination of oatmeal cookie and ooey gooey chocolate fudge. It’s a no brainer guys.
The bad/good thing is that they are so easy to make. Sorry if you become so addicted to these that you put on a few pounds. I would say the hardest part is stopping yourself from eating too much cookie dough. This cookie dough, Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake, and Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies cookie dough are irresistible! I’m usually a stickler about food safety but when it comes to cookie dough my mind only focuses on one thing- getting more cookie dough in my mouth. But anyway, don’t eat too much dough or you won’t have any to dollop on top.
So, after you make the oatmeal cookie dough (and sneak a few bites), reserve some dough and spread the rest in the pan. Then you melt the chocolate chips and mix it with sweetened condensed milk (yeah, that stuff is from heaven) and spread it over the dough. Finish up by dotting the fudge layer with the dough you set aside. Hopefully you didn’t pick too much at it and still have some left.
