I’ve decided that bake sales are a food bloggers best friend. When else can we make a treat and not have it at the house tempting us?! I love bake sales because I have an excuse to be in the kitchen baking treats that don’t have to stay in my kitchen! It’s the best of both worlds.

My daughter’s preschool has an annual spaghetti dinner and also a bake sale the same night. The parents bring in the bake sale items and then anyone can buy them with a donation. My kids LOVE this bake sale. Funny thing is, is that every single year (we’ve been going to this preschool for 3 years now) my kids always end up buying the treats that I make for the bake sale. So basically I make the treats, give my kids the money, and they end up buying the ones I made. I am quite literally paying for my own treats, lol πŸ™‚

M&M’s are always my go-to for fun treats. Add in a chocolate fudge layer on top of a buttery oatmeal crust and I am in heaven! These are so simple to make too.

In a mixing bowl combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, salt, and softened butter. Press 3/4 of it into the bottom of your baking dish.

On a side note…. how cute is my new mixing bowl?! I am addicted to kitchenware. I found these at Sam’s Club for only $15! It comes with 5 bowls and 5 lids. So if you’re near a Sam’s Club go get yourself some. They’re adorable.

For the chocolate fudge combine chocolate chips, butter, and a can of sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan and melt over medium heat. If you’re anything like me, go ahead and take a finger lick of that sweetened condensed milk. I can’t ever not do that when I open a can of that stuff!

Pour that chocolate fudge over the layer of crust you pressed in.

Crumble the reserved oatmeal crust over the chocolate and then sprinkle the mini m&m’s over it all. Gently press down. Bake these beauties and then let them cool completely. It’s so important to let them cool completely. It takes a couple of hours so be patient. They will harden up and set up nicely as they cool.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 bag (12 oz) milk chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup M&Ms

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix oats, flour, brown sugar, salt and softened butter with a spoon. It's easier if you use clean hands, if wanted. Remove a heaping 1 cup and set aside.
  • Press remaining mixture into the bottom of your prepared pan.
  • In a sauce pan, combine condensed milk, chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat and stir until completely melted and combined.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture over the bottom layer in the pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle the reserved cup of oat mixture over the chocolate, and top with m&m's. Gently press down.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. Mine are done at 23 minutes.
  • Let cool completely (about 2 hours) before cutting.

Notes

If you buy chocolate chips in bulk use 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips in place of the 12 oz bag.

I find that it's easiest to mix the oatmeal and flour mixture with my clean hands.

I like using mini m&m's but regular m&m's work just fine too.
