Holiday Cheer - Candy Bar Squares

Okay, as IF a candy bar isn't sweet enough, let's add some sweetened condensed milk and brown sugar to it!  I just made these...they have to cool, before I can try one, but when I do, I'll let ya'll know what they're like.....I imagine very sweet!  The hardest part was chopping up 4 cups of Milky Way bars.  It was just time consuming.  I do wonder if I should have used my food processor. I was just afraid it would 'chop' the bars too small.

Anyway, here's the recipe and picture of the finished product. Enjoy!

Candy Bar Squares


¾ cup butter, softened
¼ cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups quick oats
1 ½ cup flour
1 egg
1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
4 cups candy bars, chopped
(like Snickers or Milky Way)


Preheat oven 350°. In a large bowl, combine butter and peanut butter. Add brown sugar and baking soda; beat well. Stir in oats and flour. Remove and reserve 1 ¾ cups crumb mixture.

Stir egg into remaining crumb mixture; press firmly on bottom of ungreased 15 x 10 x 1 pan (I used a 13x9). Bake for 15 minutes.

Combine reserved crumb mixture and chopped candy bars together.

Spread sweetened condensed milk over baked crust. Sprinkle crumb and candy bar mixture over top. Bake 25 minutes or until golden. Cool. Cut into bars. Store covered at room temperature.

Hi, Caroline. Thanks. I'm enjoying it.

I tasted this cookie today and it's delicious. My daughter had a bite, too and says it's great. Actually not overly rich, like the 7-layer cookies are. Rich enough, though!
