quick cooking oats
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
semisweet chocolate chips
SOOOOOO good! I had half a can of sweetened condensed milk to use up, and I'm so glad I found this recipe! I did a half-batch and I pretty much followed the recipe... Although I didn't measure the peanut butter, just put a huge spoonful of it in the milk. Oh, and a hint: It's much easier to mix the milk/PB-mix and spread it over the crust if you heat it in the microwave for 15 or 30 seconds. Then in blends really easily and it's pretty simple to smooth over the base. I also pressed down on the top crust a little to make sure it would not fall apart. Wonderful! I lined the 8" pan with foil, sprayed it, and it was simple to remove and cut the bars. Thanks, Sue, I LOVE this recipe!
These were good, but a little too rich for my liking. I used a full bag of chocolate chips..(I'm not sure if that's more than 2 cups), but it was way too much. The chocolate overpowered everything else and made these sickly sweet. I did like the crust. It had a good flavor and I loved the oatmeal in it. Would probably only use half a bag of chocolate chips next time.
this recipe is excellent and so easy! they look great too. next time i will try white chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. if you slightly heat the condensed milk + peanut butter mixture in the microwave, it helps to ease the spreading over the oatmeal base.
All I can say about these bars is run to your kitchen and make them now, especially if you love PB & Chocolate together :o) I followed the directions to a "T" and these turned out awesome! Everyone who tried them loved them. I did line my pan with foil so the bars lifted out easier to cut. I stored mine in the fridge.
SOOOO GOOOOOD! I only used 1/2 cup of chocolate chips because I didn't want to make the chocolate overpowering. They came out perfect. I've tried them a few times, and they always come out a little better and softer when I bake them in a glass pan instead of a metal one. I've also used peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips. MMMMMmmm...
I have made these several times; they seem to work for me everytime. I make sure, however, not to bake them too long. This will definitely leave that burnt chocolate chip aftertaste. Watch your oven, and these will definitely be a hit!
Wow. These are really good and not too sweet. My young kids gobbled these up, and I have to say my hubby and I were right there with 'em!! I didn't measure the choc chips, just added to coat the pan. Also added a handful or 2 of white chips. I didn't have all the peanut butter it called for, which didn't matter. The peanut butter and cond. milk aren't hard to mix at all..just a little elbow grease. :) The recipe calls for you to allow them to cool before cutting them, but I had to try them out of the oven and I think they would be awesome warm with vanilla ice cream! I will definately keep this recipe. Thank you so much!!
These were good although too sweet for my taste.
I made the prep easier by using a food processor to make the oat mixture. Then after reserving part and pressing the rest into the pan, I used the processor again to mix the peanut butter & condensed milk. Altogether less than 10 min prep time.
