Chocolate FIlled Bars

My neighbor Diane has been making these yummy treats for years, and I love them!  What an easy way to make a lot of really good cookies fast!  So good!! - thanks Diane for the great recipe.

This is what it looks like right before it goes into the oven.

Chocolate Filled Bars

1 c butter or margarine
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 c flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
3 c quick oats

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 12oz bag chocolate chips
3 TBSP butter or margarine
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla (I have changed this now to 1 tsp and like it better!)

Cream butter and sugars together.  Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla - mix until smooth.  Add flour, soda and salt and mix well.  Stir in the oats until combined.  Press 2/3 of the dough into a large cookie sheet.  (It will seem very thin, but will get thicker as it cooks.)  I found it helps to have wet fingers when pressing the dough - helps the dough not stick to your fingers.

Put all filling ingredients except vanilla into a small sauce pan and melt together over low heat, stirring constantly.  When melted and smooth, remove from heat and add vanilla.  Spread the chocolate mixture over the top of the oat mixture.  Dot the remaining dough over the top of the chocolate mixture.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.  Cool completely before cutting.
