Fudgey M&M Oat Bars

Holy snapdragons!  These Fudgey M&M Oat Bars are good!  When you have a smooth, fudgey center surrounded by sweet, crumbly, oat layers and sprinkled with M&M goodness, you just can't go wrong!  The kiddos seem to agree, as well.  Oh, and the hubs.

My 12 year old always asks me to buy Ding Dongs for her lunches she takes to school.  I smile and tell her I won't buy Ding Dongs at the store because I already have one at home, her.  These Fudgey M&M Oat Bars might not be Ding Dongs, but I sure didn't get any complaints when I put them in the kids lunches.

1 1/2 cups quick oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter melted
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 ounce)bag milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup M&Ms

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl mix oats, flour, brown sugar, salt and 1 cup softened butter. Remove 1 cup of the mixture and set aside. Press remaining mixture into the bottom of a greased 9x13-inch baking dish. In a small pan, over low-medium heat, melt chocolate chips with the sweetened condensed milk and 2 tablespoons of butter, stirring constantly. Pour chocolate mixture over the oat mixture in the baking dish and spread evenly. Sprinkle leftover oat mixture over the chocolate. Top with M&Ms and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting.
