brit's fudge filled blonde brownies...

i got this recipe about 4 years ago from a recipe exchange & i love it! i took them to work last night & one of my managers come out from the back loudly saying my voice- "Britnee... i am going to have to fire you if you keep bringing yummy treats! how can i stay on my diet with this in the store:)?" as i have said 1000 times before... i {heart} an easy, yet delicious bar recipe!!! & this is just that. the fudgy filling couldn't be any simpler! i hope you enjoy it as much me & my fellow employees.

{brit's fudge filled blonde brownies}

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup margarine
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups quick cook oats

in a small microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk & vanilla, on 50% power for 90 seconds. stir & cook another 20 seconds in not completely melted. set aside.

in a large bowl, cream together margarine & sugar. add eggs & vanilla & beat well. sift in flour, salt & baking soda. mix until combined. stir in oatmeal.

press 1/2 of the oatmeal mixture into the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish. spread chocolate mixture evenly over crust. spoon over remaining oatmeal mixture. bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden. let cool several hours before cutting.

This recipe looks and sounds so good. I can't wait to try it, but is there any specific reason that it calls for margarine vs butter? I don't usually like to use margarine when I bake, unless there is a really good reason why.

i am totally with you kim! i actually used 'i can't believe it's not butter', the baking sticks, or you could use butter flavored crisco. but it tends to keep the crust softer than if you use butter. i have tried it both ways & i can tell a difference. you could definitely use what you have, just soften the butter of course.
