Sponsored – These Chocolate Fudge Bars were first featured by my friends over at Martha White and on their website they’re called “Sakes Alive” Chocolate Fudge Bars. Layers of brown sugar, oats, nuts and a unique use for chocolate chip muffin mix these chocolate fudge bars have it all. The name caught my eye but oh the taste just makes you want to jump up and say “Sakes alive!” For those of you who may not be familiar with this Southern saying it’s another way of saying “For goodness sake” an emphatic “Oh my” or “Wow!” One bite of these chocolate fudge bars and you’ll understand how they earned their name. Finger licking is to be expected.
