    Default Double Chocolate-Oatmeal Bars

    Chocolate Filling
    1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
    4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
    11/4 cups packed brown sugar
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp salt
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 cups uncooked old-fashioned oats
    1/2 cup M&Mís mini baking bits

    PREPARATION
    1. Heat oven to 350įF. Line a 13 x 9-in. baking pan with foil, letting ends extend about 2 in. above pan. Lightly coat with nonstick spray.



    2. Filling: Microwave milk and chocolate in a 1-qt glass measure on high until steaming hot. Let stand 1 minute. Stir until chocolate melts and mixture is well blended and thickened. Stir in vanilla.



    3. Put next 5 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with mixer until fluffy. Add flour; beat just until blended. Stir in oats (mixture will be crumbly). Press 2/3 firmly over bottom of pan. Spread evenly with chocolate mixture, then sprinkle with remaining oat mixture and the M&Mís.



    4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes until lightly browned on top. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Lift foil by ends to cutting board. Cut into 48 bars.



    Planning Tip: Store airtight with wax paper between layers at room temperature up to 5 days or freeze up to 3 months.
