Chocolate Jumbles

This has always been one of my favorite bar recipes. It's got such a wonderful blend of smooth velvety fudge swirling around crunchy oatmeal cookie-like pieces. I've always gotten rave reviews when I serve them.

  • 1 cup butter, softened (you can also replace 1/2 of the butter with peanut butter for Chocolate PB Jumbles)
  • 2 cups brown sugar (I prefer dark brown sugar)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
Chocolate Topping
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
Crust and chocolate layer in place
  1. Cream all cookie mixture ingredients together except the flour. Stir in 1 cup of flour at a time.
  2. Spread 3/4 of cookie mixture in greased pan.
  3. Melt chocolate and butter together in a small saucepan on the stove. Add milk and heat till smooth. Or toss the chocolate chips, butter, and milk in a bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes. Stir. 
  4. Spread chocolate topping over cookie crust.
  5. Top with remaining 1/4 cookie mixture
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Cool 15-20 minutes before serving.
I like to serve these with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Mmmmm...
