Scrumptious Saturday - Chocolate Oat Squares

These are delicious! I got the recipe from Taste of Home October/November 2000 issue.

Ingredients:

1 cup plus 2 tbsp butter - softened/divided
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
4 tsp vanilla extract divided
3 cups quick cooking oats
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt divided
1 tsp baking soda
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts

In a mixing bowl, cream 1 cup butter and brown sugar. Beat in eggs and 2 tsp vanilla. Combine the oats, flour, 1 tsp salt and baking soda. Stir into creamed mixture. Press two-thirds of oat mixture into a greased 15x10x1in baking pan. In a saucepan, combine milk, chocolate chips, and remaining butter and salt. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted. remove from the heat. Stir in walnuts and remaining vanilla. Spread over the crust. Sprinkle with remaining oat mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. Cut into squares.

Yield: 4 dozen
