chocolate bars

Chocolate Bars
makes 60 bars
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
3 cups quick cooking rolled oats
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate pieces
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350˚
Set aside 2 tablespoons of butter. In a large bowl beat remaining butter until fluffy. Add brown sugar and baking soda, beat until combined. Beat in eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Beat in flour and rolled oats, dough will be stiff.
For the filling, in a medium saucepan combine the reserved 2 tablespoons butter, chocolate, and condensed milk. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate melts. Remove from heat, add vanilla and chopped nuts.
Press 2/3 of the rolled oats mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 15x10x1 inch baking pan. Spread chocolate filling over the oat mixture. Dot the remaining rolled oats mixture on top.
Bake for about 25 minutes or until the top is lightly browned (the chocolate filling will still look moist). Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
