Recipe source: http://www.rachaelray.com/recipes/plan-b-moms-starbucks-oat-fudge-bars
- 1 1/2 cups butter, softened, divided
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups oats
- 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
Line a 9-inch x 13-inch baking pan with foil and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray. With an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, cream 1 cup butter with both sugars and the eggs. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, salt and oats and add slowly to the creamed mixture. Spread three-quarters of the batter into the prepared pan (I wet my clean hands with water to press down the dough evenly). Reserve the remainder of dough for the topping.
Combine the condensed milk, chocolate chips, the remaining 1/2 cup of butter and vanilla in a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave, stirring often to prevent scorching. Stir until smooth and pour chocolate mixture over dough in pan. Drop the remainder of the oats dough by spoonfuls on top – press down slightly. Bake for 22-28 minutes, or until a toorhpick comes out with very few moist crumbs. Let cool completely before cutting and serving.
Sometimes I just post things on here that make me happy. Does that mean that if you eat these no bake bars you will feel like dancing? Maybe.

In addition to keeping the cake from sticking to the pan, lining the pan with foil makes it easy to lift it out after baking. If you can’t find pumpkin-pie spice, substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon ginger, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/2 teaspoon each allspice and cloves (all ground).
- PREP: 30 MINS
- TOTAL TIME: 2 HOURS 30 MINS
- YIELD: MAKES 24
- 2 cups all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin-pie spice
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line bottom and sides of a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with foil, leaving an overhang on all sides. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, pie spice, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar on medium-high speed until smooth; beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in pumpkin puree (mixture may appear curdled). Reduce speed to low, and mix in dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake until edges begin to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted in center comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely in pan.
Lift cake from pan (using foil as an aid). Peel off foil, and use a serrated knife to cut into 24 squares.

- 22 individual Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (regular size), unwrapped and divided
- 3 cups milk chocolate chips

Line a 9×9-inch pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Place 16 peanut butter cups in an even layer on the bottom of the pan. Place chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir until chips and milk melt together.
Once everything is melted, spread evenly over peanut butter cups in prepared pan. Crumble remaining Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and sprinkle over the top, pressing them lightly into the fudge. Cool on counter-top until fudge reaches room temperature, then cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to harden completely. Cut into squares and serve. Makes 32 bite-sized servings.
