These "Chocolate In-Betweens" are that perfect mixture of oatmeal cookie with a chocolate filling that tastes like fudge. Easy to make, and even easier to eat!

With a fudgy ganache-like center and a chewy oatmeal crust, what is there not to like about this delicious dessert? These cookie bars are great for a bake sale or an after-dinner treat. They were eaten real fast in the Test Kitchen. So good! The Test Kitchen
