  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch square baking pan.
  2. To prepare Filling: In a heavy pot, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter and chocolate chips. Add the evaporated milk and 1/4 cup of the white sugar. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in nuts and cool.
  3. To prepare cookie base: Cream 1 1/2 cups of the butter and the brown sugar together. Add the vanilla and the egg, and beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the flour, baking soda, and 1 3/4 cups of the oats and blend well.
  5. Press 2/3 of this mixture into the bottom of the greased pan. Spread the cooled filling on top of the cookie crust.
  6. Mix the remaining 1/4 cup of oats with the remainder of the cookie base, and crumble over the filling. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

My mom made these all the time growing up, and they are my favorite however the recipe here is a little off. Use Sweetened and Condensed milk not evaporated milk. Also, save some of the crust ...

The proportions are totally wrong and leave you with a soupy mess, not bars. Additionally, condensed milk and evaporated milk are TWO DIFFERENT things. Condensed works, evaporated doesn't. Yo...

This recipe turns out perfectly even with evaporated milk in a 9x13 pan. I usually double the recipe and use a 16x12x1 in. cookie sheet. I also leave out the walnuts b/c of personal preference....

These had a wonderful flavor but I wish I would have read the reviews first because mine came out mushy since I used the 9 inch square pan. I will definitely make them again but use a bigger pa...

I followed the directions except 1) I used a can of condensed milk instead of the evaporated milk and I ommitted the 1/4 cup sugar in the filling and 2) I cooked the bars in a 9 x 13 pan and 3) ...

Delicious!! Yes they do crumble a bit, but I'd rather have a tasty bar than a tidy and less tasty bar. I increased all ingredients by 50% and baked this on a heavy 10x17 cookie sheet for 25 min...

It certainly does need the 9x13 and by reading the other reviews I knew this. My try at this turned out very much like a moist cake-like bar when it came out of the oven-we can never wait for th...

This recipe turns out great if you use a larger pan. I took these to a holiday party and everyone asked for the recipe. And anyone who thinks the filling is too much trouble either doesn't work ...

In a 9x13 pan with sweetened condensed milk this always comes out incredibly! one of my favorite recipes of all time!!
