Whenever I take these bars to an event, I bring along the recipe. People love them! The almond flavoring gives them an extra yum!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Beat 1 cup butter and brown sugar in a large bowl until smooth and creamy. Stir in eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract; mix well. Combine oats, flour, sliced almonds, baking soda, and 1 teaspoon salt in another bowl; stir into butter mixture until batter is just mixed. Spread 2/3 batter into a 10x15-inch rimmed baking sheet.
  3. 3 Heat chocolate chips, condensed milk, 2 tablespoons butter, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a saucepan over medium heat until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in remaining 2 teaspoons vanilla extract and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. Spread chocolate mixture into baking sheet over oat batter. Spoon remaining 1/3 oat batter over chocolate.
  4. 4 Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

  3. fam luved it
  4. Not much to say about these other than they are DANGEROUSLY GOOD!
  5. Yummy... These bars our easy to make and turned out excellent. They took about 20 minutes to bake in a 350 oven. I waited and added almonds to the remaining 1/3 oat batter and then crumbled the batter on top. My family loved these. Two thumbs up!!!
  6. Tasty bars.. made quite a bit more than 30. I used regular old fashioned oats and it came out fine. Vanished at church potluck!
  7. 5 stars. I didn't use the sliced almonds and I will try a 1/4 tsp of almond extract in the fudge mix. They were a hit!
