fudgy oatmeal cookie cups.

 If you love oatmeal and chocolate chip desserts, this is a recipe you won't want to miss! Plus aren't they just adorable?!

Betcha' can't just eat one ;)

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp vanilla extract, divided
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (I used fat free)
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
3 Tbsp butter

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (temp should be set at 325 degrees if using darker pans). Lightly grease a 2-24 count mini muffin pans (makes 48).

2. In a large bowl, beat together 1 cup butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Mix in eggs and 1 tablespoon vanilla. In another bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda, and 1 teaspoon salt; stir into butter mixture. 

3. Stir in 1 cup of mini chocolate chips. Set aside.

4. In a medium saucepan, heat sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons butter, and 1/2 teaspoon salt over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 tablespoon vanilla.

5. Using a small cookie scoop place dough into muffin tins filling the cup 1/2 way to the top. Spread 1 tsp of the chocolate mixture evenly over the top of each cup, and dot each cup with the remaining oat mixture.

6. Bake for 10 minutes in preheated oven.

7. Let cool completely, then remove from pans.

**Removing them can be tricky, just wait for them to cool and use a knife to ease up the edges.
