I was on a baking streak a few weeks backs.  Made three different bars within just a few days.  Good thing they freeze well!  I always like having extra food in my freezer for the busier weeks or the unexpected guests :)

Fudge Topped Peanut Butter Chip Blondies – I made these things – extremely good!  Follow the link for the recipe.  I topped with peanut butter chips instead of peanuts. *if you click on the link – ignore the star rating – kind of confused by that b/c the commenters said they are delicious*

Melt In Your Mouth Lemon Bars – And these bars were exactly what the title says.  Melt in your mouth!  Shortbread crust with a lemony filling and a nice sweet glaze.  I am NOT a lemon person, but these.were.good. (along side one of these other chocolaty bars of course :)

Do I have a favorite out of the 3?  That’s a hard one because they are all very different.  Depends what your in the mood for.

Deep Dish Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie Bars

2 sticks margarine or butter

2 eggs

2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2 cups brown sugar

2 tsp vanilla

1/3 cup milk

3 cups oatmeal

In a stand mixer, mix the butter, eggs and brown sugar.  Add vanilla and milk.  Slowly incorporate the rest of the dry ingredients.  Mix well.
In a saucepan over medium heat melt together (or in the microwave):
1 can eagle’s brand sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Spread 3/4th of the cookie mixture on the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan, pour chocolate mixture on top and spread over the cookie layer.  Piece the rest of the cookie mixture on over the chocolate covering as much as possible.  Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool completely.
