If you have a family like mine, you know they are always looking for a sweet treat to eat at the end of a long day. Well, if they really are anything like mine, they are constantly looking for something sweet all the time! So, I’m always whipping up some delicious concoction for them to consume! And if you know me, it’s got to be quick, easy and oh, so yummy. These Fudgy Snickers Squares have a unique combination of a crispy oat crust, a silky chocolate fudge filling and most importantly, chewy caramel-nutty Snickers Bars floating on the top! The outcome is heavenly — nothing better than gooey, rich perfection!
Fudgy Snickers Squares
(inspired from Betty Crocker)
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups Quaker® quick-cooking oats
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips (9 oz)
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
5 full-size Snickers® Bars, chopped (about 2 cups)
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl of an electric mixer, beat brown sugar and butter on medium speed until blended and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and egg. On low speed, beat in oats, flour, baking soda and salt until well blended. Reserve 3/4 cup mixture for topping and press remaining mixture in the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 13×9-inch pan.
In 2-quart saucepan, heat chocolate chips and condensed milk over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Pour over crust.
Sprinkle chopped candy bars evenly over chocolate mixture. Crumble reserved oat mixture over candy.
Bake 35 minutes or until golden brown and set. Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours. Cut bars into squares and eat.
My boys went nuts over these Fudgy Snickers Squares! They are a perfect treat washed down with a cold glass of milk or served as a decadent dessert after a fancy dinner with a hot cup of coffee.
