Starbucks Oat Fudge Bars

fudgebar-stackFor the last couple of weeks, my husband has been raving about the Starbucks Oat Fudge Bars — these rich, chewy, chocolatey confections that are unique to Canadian Starbucks stores. There are a number of copycat recipes floating around, so I decided to try recreating these babies for myself. It’s super easy and quick — this comes together in less than an hour. I did cut down slightly on the sugar and swapped in dark chocolate to make them a little less sweet, but they are still decadent. If you’re feeding a crowd, feel free to double the ingredients and bake in a 9″x13″ pan. Enjoy with strong coffee or a glass of milk!

Ingredients
For the fudge layer

  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter

For the oat base

  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups oats

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper.
  2. Make the fudge. In a small pot over medium heat, combine the milk, chocolate chips, and butter. Stir until melted and set aside. OR, combine ingredients in a microwave-safe container and microwave until melted (microwave in small increments and stir often).
  3. Using a stand or hand mixer, cream the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla. Gradually add the dry ingredients.
  4. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the prepared pan. Add a layer of fudge and finish with the rest of the oat base dropped by spoonfuls.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
