Chocolate Butterscotch Oatmeal Bars
Oh man. These are officially my new favorite dessert. I could eat the whole stinkin pan. Almost did.
I had been meaning to try these for over a year and finally made them for a friend's birthday yesterday. Oh my. These babies changed my life. I know they don't look like much but I promise, they're amazing. They don't even sound like something I would go crazy for but I did. And do. And will forever! YUM!
2 cups of melted butter
2 1/4 c. of brown sugar
3 cups of Quaker oats
3 cups of flour
1 1/2 tsp of salt
1 1/2 tsp of vanilla
Mix all ingredients and spread half of the mixture out on a cookie sheet. (I used a 9x13 pan and they were perfect!) Bake at 350 for 8 min.
Then combine :
1 jar of butterscotch (I only had a jar of caramel on hand so that's what I used.)
2 Tbls of flour
Pour on top of baked oatmeal mixture then add 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of butterscotch chips and put evenly on top of mixture. Crumble remaining oatmeal mixture on top and bake for 15-20 min.
When they come out of the oven they will completely fall apart so wait and make sure they're completely cooled before you cut into them. I waited an hour and the first piece I cut was still really crumbly so I put them in the fridge for another hour and they reached perfection!
P.S. We dropped them off at our friend's house last night and her sister (also a friend!) was there and texted me within ten minutes to say they were delish and she needed the recipe stat. And in our neighborhood (which is comprised of 50 percent of our ward,) there are some seriously delish treats being made so you know these are good if they made the cut ;)
