1 cup oleo
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
4 cups oatmeal


Melt 1 package chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter

Fudge Topping

1/2 cup butter
4 squares chocolate
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups sugar
1 large can evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla

Put together oleo, brown and white sugar and oatmeal. Press into a jelly roll pan or 2x9x12 cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. (Make sure it doesn't get too brown. It's done when it's pale brown.) Mix frosting together and spread on top. Cut bars before cold. To make fudge topping instead of using frosting, melt chocolate and butter in pan. Add sugar a little at a time. Add milk a little at a time then bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add 1 tsp vanilla. Spread on top.
