Bake Sale! Chocolate Oat Squares

My son, a junior in high school, says, “Can I bring plates of cookies for a DECA bake sale? I get points for my grade.” Why, yes!  We can do that.  I remember my daughter was told by a teacher she could have extra credit points if she brought AA batteries.  I bought lots of batteries at Costco, anything to help the grade point average!  So, selling goodies to high school students, I should probably stick with an old favorite.  Chocolate Oat Squares also known as Chocolate Revel Bars.  Whatever you call them, they are yummy and the recipe makes a whole cookie sheet full of goodness.  Thanks to whoever came up with this one.

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups oats
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1  tsp salt
2 Tbl butter
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 tsp vanilla

In large 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 15 by 10 by 1-inch baking pan.

In a saucepan, combine remaining butter, sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and salt.  Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate is melted.  Remove from the heat; stir in walnuts and remaining vanilla.

Spread over crust. Sprinkle with remaining oat mixture, pat down gently.  Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. Cut into squares.
