Fudge Nut Bars

YEAH! It is the Easter season and so I can give you dessert recipes, my favorite! Here is a good one, and of course, it is sweet and chocolatey.

Fudge Nut Bars

1 c plus 2 tbls butter, softened
2 c brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 c quick-cooking rolled oats
1 12oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c sweetened condensed milk
1 c nuts, chopped

In the large bowl of a mixer, combine 1 c butter and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add 1 tsp vanilla. Combine flour, soda and 1 tsp salt. Stir into creamed mixture. Stir in oats. Spread about 2/3 of oat mixture in bottom of a 9x13 pan. Set aside. Combine chocolate chips, milk, 2 tbls butter, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat, add nuts and remaining vanilla. Spread over layer in pan. Dot with remaining oat mixture, spreading as evenly as possible. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and cut into bars. Yield 24 bars.
