I have been making a lot of recipes that my Grandma used to make and these Old Fashioned Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Bars are some of my favorite!
These bars remind of me of “no-bake” cookies but better! They are just about as easy to make though.Find good chocolate, or use some you have on hand. Once I used leftover Valentines Day candy!
This is a super fast and great treat. The Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Bars take less then 15 minutes to make and 15 minutes to bake, so within a really short time you have a nice treat that is kid friendly!
