Ingredients

For the Oat Layer

  • 2/3 cups butter softened
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 3/4 cups rolled oats

For the Fudge Layer

  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • A few drops vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups white chocolate chips

To Finish

  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries

Instructions

To Make the Fudge Layer

  • Add all ingredients except the white chocolate to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Stir in the white chocolate until melted and continue simmering until thickened to a thick caramel-like consistency.

To Make the Oat Layer

  • Preheat the oven to 360°F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish well.
  • In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar together for 5 minutes. Add the egg and continue beating until light in color, about 2 minutes.
  • Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until combined. Stir in the oats and press 3/4 of the mixture into the prepared baking pan.

To Finish

  • Evenly sprinkle the cranberries over the oat batter. Pour the white chocolate fudge on top - work quickly because it gets sticky if it gets too cool. Drop blobs of the remaining oat mixture evenly over the fudge layer.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden. Cool in the pan before slicing and serving OR refrigerate overnight OR serve warm and gooey fresh out of the oven with spoons.
