Fudge Rubble Bars

Warm gooey fudge surrounded by chewy oatmeal cookie. I can not find enough words to describe how delicious these are. Warm gooey fudge surrounded by chewy oatmeal pretty much says it all. A neighbor gave these to me many many years ago. I had never tasted any bar cookie that was as yummy as these. So of course I had to have the recipe, you will find version all over the internet, I like this simple version. Chocolate and oatmeal are plenty of love for one cookie. My friend called them “Fudge Rubble Bars” and I have kept that name. The chewy oatmeal on top of the smooth fudge looks like a pile of rubble. This one is a must bake and share. It makes a 9×13 pan and if you cut it in 20-24 squares that is plenty. One cookie is more than enough to eat in one sitting. Pack them up quick and send them out the door or you will find that you have eaten more than a few cookies at the end of the day.

CRUST

Place all ingredients in a mixer bowl, stir just until it looks crumbly. Reserve 1/3 of mixture for topping. Once the crust is mixed press 2/3 of mixture in a 9×13 pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

TIP:Using cold butter helps to achieve this. Cut the butter into 1 tablespoon pieces then mix in mixer.

FILLING

Combine the ingredients for the filling. Melt in microwave for 1 minute then stir well, repeat until chocolate is melted, smooth and creamy.

TOPPING

Pour the melted fudge mixture over the oatmeal layer. Next take the reserved crust and crumble it over the fudge in small to medium clusters. Leave them as they fall, do not try to smooth them out. Bake at 350 ° for30-40 minutes until tops of clusters are golden brown. As these bake the fudge rises up and around the clusters of oatmeal surrounding them with warm gooey fudge. Let them cool for 20 minutes before cutting otherwise you will end up with a gooey oatmeal globs.
