Deep Dish Fudgy Oatmeal Bars

These Deep Dish Fudgy Oatmeal Bars have a fudge center, sandwiched between two oatmeal layers. They taste incredible and have an amazing texture! They're one of my top five favorite desserts I've ever had.

  • Cookie:
  • 1 cup {2 sticks} salted butter softened
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 cup milk {I use 1% but any kind will work}
  • 2 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Fudge:
  • Fudge:
  • 1 {14 oz.} can Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 {12 oz.} bag milk chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup salted butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9x13 inch nonstick pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar and eggs and mix well. Add the vanilla and milk and incorporate well.
  3. In a medium, separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. Spread 2/3 of the mixture into the pan and set aside.
  4. In a medium saucepan, combine all of the ingredients for the fudge and let melt completely over medium heat. Once melted, pour over the prepared cookie mixture.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of the remaining cookie dough over the top of the fudge. It won't cover it completely, but will make for a pretty top.
  6. Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes. If the top is getting browned after 15 minutes, cover with foil. Let cool completely, so the insides don't run everywhere.
