I found this recipe origanally in a Taste of Home cookbook belonging to my mother. The taste of home version called for only 3 cups of quick cooking oats and called to be baked in a 10x15" baking pan. With this change the cookies come out soft and chewy. Please note that these cookies are REALLY sweet.

This has the potential to be great, but the recipe as it stands produces very dry, crumbly bars that are far too sweet. Most of them went in the garbage.

Half of this recipe fits nicely in a 8" square baking pan. It's a bit labour intensive for squares, but the result is quite delicious. Try it with other nuts if you don't like walnuts. Thanks Janea!

We call these Fudge Jumbles in my house and love to make them all the time. We omit the nuts though as we don't like them. Still tastes great!

This recipe is really yummy, very moist. It has a great combination of chocolate and cookie crust. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Delicious!!! Only thing I changed was to leave out the nuts for we don't like them. At first I worried that the dough was too think, but it was perfect. Some reviews have said the bars are too rich, thick, and sweet. Of couse they are--look at the ingredients!! They ARE rich and thick and DELICIOUS!!!!! :) I had to cut into a corner well before they were cool for the smell was just too good). Thanks for the recipe!!!!!!!!!!

This cookie tasted good- but was too rich. I ended up disposing of part of cookies because no one could eat much. If I do make this again, I would either double oatmeal part of this recipe and use half chocolate mixture in each recipe or I would just use melted chocolate chips between oatmeal layers.

These are so delicious! I use a larger pan because it's easier to spread them. I love the fudge center. These are always a favorite at any event.
