Stressed is Desserts spelled Backwards


The picture turned out a little blurry, but it didn't affect the flavor at all!

CHOCOLATE OATMEAL RAISIN BARS
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 bag (12 oz) milk chocolate chips
1 can Eagle Brand condensed milk
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup flour
4 packages instant maple brown sugar oatmeal, dry
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/3 cup Heath Bar toffee bits
1/4 cup crushed walnuts
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
  • Mix together using your hands: 2 sticks butter, brown sugar, flour, oatmeal, salt, and baking soda.
  • Place 1/2 of this mixture in a greased 8x8 pan. Pat down.
  • In a medium saucepan melt 1 stick butter. Add the chocolate chips and condensed milk. Stir until smooth. When melted add the toffee, nuts and raisins.
  • Pour over mixture in pan.
  • Take remaining oatmeal mixture and put over top, patting down.
  • Bake at 325ยบ for 20-25 minutes.
  • Cool completely before cutting.
  • Store in a cool place (frig is best in an air tight container).
Let me warn you these are very rich and should be cut into small pieces. They are like a rich fudge.
