Ingredients

  • 1

    cup butter, softened

  • 2

    cups packed brown sugar

  • 1

    tsp baking soda

  • 2

    eggs

  • 2

    tsp vanilla

  • 2 1/2

    cups all purpose flour

  • 3

    cups quick cooking rolled oats

  • 1 1/2

    cups semisweet chocolate pieces

  • 1

    14-oz can sweetened condensed milk (or low fat)

  • 1/2

    cup chopped walnuts or pieces

  • 2

    tsp vanilla

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. Reserve 2 tbsp of the butter for filling. In a large bowl beat the remaining butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and 2 tsp vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Stir in oats. For filling, in a medium saucepan combine the reserved butter, chocolate pieces, and sweetened condensed milk. Cook over low heat until chocolate is melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in nuts and 2 tsp vanilla. Press two-thirds (about 3 1/3 cups) of the oat mixture evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Spread with filling. Crumble the remaining oat mixture evenly over top. Bake in preheated oven about 25 minutes or until top is lightly browned (filling will still looke moist). Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Peanut butter bars: Prepare as directed, except substitute 1/2 cup peanut butter for the 2 tbsp butter when making the filling and substitute peanuts for the other nuts. Whole wheat chocolate reveal: Prepare as directed, except reduce the all purpose flour to 1 1/2 cups and add 1 cup whole wheat flour. Store: up to 3 days or freeze up to 3 months
