These are one of my favorite treats and are requested OFTEN by friends and family alike. I do believe they are the most requested recipe from my Hubby and kids. This recipe makes a full cookie sheet and they are absolutely perfect for a pot-luck or that 'special treat' at a family party. Once you take them, they'll request them again and again.... Make sure to store them in an airtight container and they'll stay soft! MMMMM......mmmmmm........Good!

Mix together:

1 cup margarine

2 cups brown sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 cups rolled oats

2 1/2 cups flour

2 teaspoons soda

1 teaspoon salt

Press 2/3 of batter onto greased cookie sheet. Reserve other 1/3....

Then melt together:

1 pkg chocolate chips (your choice**semi sweet are my favorite**)

1 can sweetened condensed milk

2 Tablespoons margarine

2 teaspoons vanilla

I melt this in the microwave in a glass bowl in 30 second increments, stirring in between. It took approximately 1minute and 15seconds. If you feel more comfortable about melting this in a saucepan on the stovetop, go ahead. Then spread filling on top of the dough in the cookie sheet. Now dot the remaining dough on top. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool then cut and store into an airtight container.

FYI-- when I want to take these to somewhere special I will use 2 cups of the dark cocoa with vanilla buttons from kitchen kneads instead of the regular chocolate chips. You can serve them in smaller servings and they are richer too. LOVE THEM!!!!

Happy Cooking



  1. The best ever, I had to hide them when you made them for us and now I have stopped cooking them so that I don't eat the whole pan!!!

  2. Katie, You can come to my house now and eat some! I thought I just heard them calling your name! K-A-T-I-E!!!!! lol

  3. Wish I lived closer, I'd come over and eat the whole pan too! They look sooo good.

  4. So, I've been thinking about these since the first day you posted them and finally made them tonight. MMMMMMMMM.....I'm in heaven!! :) Camille

  5. Making these tomorrow. Can't wait!!

  6. And I bought oats, but I don't know if they are the right ones. Is it the quick ones or just the normal ones?

  7. Erica, I use whatever I have on hand! They all work!
