These Deep Dish Fudgy Oatmeal Bars bring oatmeal cookie bars to a whole new level. They are seriously filled with a layer of sugar sweet fudge in the middle!
This one is definitely a crowd pleaser and the texture is amazing. First, you have a nice chewy cookie as the base. Then, sandwiched in between that chewy cookie base is a rich and creamy chocolaty fudge layer. It’s like the chocolate fudge and oatmeal cookies had a baby!
Since this bars are so rich and fudgy you want to cut them a little smaller than you would normally think. You can easily make 15-18 servings with this sweetly decadent dessert bar.
