Chocolate Chip Bars

Because it looks like this outside:





I made some chocolate chip bars. What is it about a dreary, rainy day that positively beckons one to bake?

Chocolate Chip Bars

Mix together:
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup softened butter

Save 1/2 cup of the mixture, and put the rest in a greased 9 x 13 pan. Pour a 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk evenly over the crust. Sprinkle with a 12 oz. package of chocolate chips, and top with the remaining oat mixture.

Bake at 350º F. 25-30 minutes. Let cool before cutting.

Easy and delicious. The perfect antidote to the weather.

  4. Hey, just because something is unctuously mouth-watering doesn't mean it's a sin! These even have oatmeal in them!

  7. Me, too, Tara. I love oats in most anything -crisps and crunches, etc.

  9. Nan, We had a version of these in my home growing up and called Magic Cookie Bars. In my husband's childhood home they were called "Santa Snacks." Yummy memories! :)

  10. They are like magic cookie bars minus the graham crackers, nuts, and coconut. This is a bit quicker to make, and handy if you don't have graham crackers on hand. I actually offered the magic cookie bar recipe in a very early blog entry:
