If gooey is your thing, you will love these. If gooey is not
your thing, you won’t. But who isn’t in to gooey baked goods? Nobody that I associate with.
These are rich, chocolate-y, oatmeal-y, caramel-y goodness.
There actually is no caramel involved, but the sweetened condensed milk has
that effect on things.
2 cans (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 ½ tablespoons vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ½ cups flour
2 cups old fashioned oats
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 375.
Mix the milk, vanilla, and chocolate chips in a bowl. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar
together. Add the vanilla and eggs. Slowly mix in the flour, oats, baking soda,
and salt. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.
Spread about half of the oat mixture into the bowl, and press down. Bake for
about 8-10 minutes. Pour the milk
mixture over it (adding more chocolate chips if your heart desires), then drop
the remaining oat mixture in clumps on top. It should be scattered-looking so
the milk seeps on top and creates a delicious-looking effect. Bake for about 20 minutes. Let cool
completely before slicing. Actually, I refrigerated mine a bit to help fully set the condensed milk mixture. I don't have that kind of time when I'm baking and sampling.
