Oat Fudge Bars (like Starbucks)

We decided to do some baking for my husbands colleagues and at first we were going to make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies but then my husband started talking about these fudge bars from Starbucks that he’s heard so much about but has never tried. So we did a search and found a similar recipe. It was my first time making the Oat Fudge Bars but they were simple and turned out really delicious!

2 cups chocolate chips
