Jen's Chocolate Revel Bars

Chocolate Revel Bars
1 cup butter or margarine
2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups quick cooking rolled oats
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (=1 1/4 cups)
1 (12-ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips (=2 cups)
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Set aside 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine. In a large mixing bowl, beat the remaining butter or margarine with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar; beat until well mixed. Beat in eggs and 2 tsp vanilla. In another large bowl, stir together flour and baking soda; stir in oats. Gradually stir dry mixture into beaten mixture. Set aside.

In a medium saucepan, combine the reserved butter or margarine, sweetened condensed milk and the chocolate chips. Cook over low heat until the chocolate melts, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in walnuts and 2 teaspoons vanilla.

Press 2/3 of the oat mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 15”x10”x1” baking pan. Spread the
chocolate mixture over the oat mixture. Using your fingers, dot the remaining oat mixture over the chocolate. Bake for about 25 minutes or until the top is lightly browned (chocolate mixture will still look moist). Cool on a wire rack. Cut into 2”x1” bars. Makes about 75 bars.
