Are you looking for a decadent over the top chocolate chip cookie recipe… then I’m you’re gal. I found this unbelievable recipe that combines not only chocolate chip oatmeal cookies but also a really easy chocolate fudge filling.
That’s right… three layers of absolute yummiliciousness… (HA… I made a new word, :-)). I found this recipe from Lori at Recipe girl  again, love her and all her yumminess, and knew I needed to try them. Now some may say that these are too sweet but you know what that makes it even better! 😉
The best part about these is that they are really really easy to make, just make your basic chocolate chip oatmeal cookie dough and a chocolate fudge that only uses three ingredients, chocolate chips, condensed milk and vanilla extract. Layer one after the other pop in the oven and then you smell how wonderful your kitchen will get… just be prepared to be attached when these babies come out of the oven, I think I literally had to hold my daughter back from jumping them and gobbling them up. 🙂
Just make sure you have a tall glass of milk or a nice cup of hot chocolate…Mmmmmmm!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Fudge Bars
adapted from Recipegirl 
GOOEY CHOCOLATE FILLING:
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a 9×13-inch pan with parchment paper, allowing enough overhang on the long side to lift the bars from the pan.
Prepare the gooey chocolate filling: Place the chocolate chips and condensed milk in a small saucepan over the lowest possible heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the chocolate has melted and the mixture has thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, add vanilla, and stir until smooth. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Prepare the cookie dough: Place the butter and sugars in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Beat well. Whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Add to the butter mixture. Beat until everything is well incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Prepare the bars: Using half of the batch of cookie dough, place dollops into the prepared pan and press down lightly to even it out. Pour the cooled chocolate mixture over the dough and then add small dollops of the remaining dough on top. Don’t worry if the dollops don’t completely cover the chocolate mixture. Just spread it together as much as you can, and let some chocolate peek through.
Bake until lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Set aside to cool completely, then cut into 32 bars.
