If you’ve ever had a week like we’ve had then you know what we mean when we say we feel OVERLOADED, like over-the-top overwhelmed! From being overscheduled to overcommitted, we feel overworked! Good thing it’s Saturday because we’re overjoyed we can overachieve in the one department that’s been overlooked all week – dessert! We’re over-the-moon for Overloaded Oatmeal Bars! And we’re overconfident you will be too! But be warned! We know you’re gonna love them that you’ll likely overeat and overstuff yourself! Over and out until next week!
1 1/2 cups quick oats
1½ cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter flavored Crisco
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 bag milk chocolate chips
2 TB butter softened
1 cup of various kinds of M&Ms
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, mix oats, flour, brown sugar, salt and Crisco with a spoon. Remove 1 cup and set aside.
Press remaining mixture into the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan.
In a small pot, melt condensed milk, chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of butter over low-medium heat. Stir constantly until chips are melted and everything is mixed well.
Pour chocolate chip mixture over the bottom layer and spread evenly. Sprinkle leftover cup of oat mixture over the chocolate.
Top with M&Ms and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting. Overenjoy!
