Oatmeal Fudge bars

 

I love to bake, so I am always trying out new flavor combinations. This week we had a party at my house for some of our friends. We had about 20 people at our house. I love cookies, but I didn’t have the energy to make cookies. I hate spooning them out and then taking them out of the oven and do it over and over again. I still make them – but since I knew I was going to be busy with other party stuff – I didn’t want to make cookies. So I decided to make bars.

Bars are the perfect party dessert.You can make a giant pan and it is super easy! No need to run in the kitchen every 8-9 minutes! I think this is my new go-to dessert. I love the layers. And the chocolate tastes like hot fudge. It’s amazing!
