Chocolate Nut Bars
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Beat butter on medium in a large mixing bowl for 30 seconds. Add sugar and 1/8 teaspoon salt; beat until combined. Beat in the flour on low speed. Press two-thirds of the dough into the bottom of an ungreased 13″x9″x2″ baking pan.
Combine condensed milk and the chocolate in a medium saucepan. Stir over low heat until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.
Stir in nuts and vanilla. Spread the mixture over the crust. Dot with remaining 1/3 of the crust mixture.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 35 minutes or until golden. Cool thoroughly in the pan on a wire rack.
Cut into 25 bars.
