  • 1 cups - butter (1 cup = 2 sticks), divided
  • 2 cups - packed brown sugar
  • 2 - eggs
  • 4 teaspoons - vanilla extract, divided
  • 2 1/2 cups - all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoons - baking soda
  • 3 cups - quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1 cans - sweetened condensed milk (Not evaporated milk)
  • 2 cups - semi-sweet chocolate chips (2 cups = 12 oz. pkg)
  • 1 cups - sliced almonds, divided
  • Directions:

    Heat oven to 350° F. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the butter.

    Beat the remaining butter in a large bowl on medium speed with mixer for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar; beat until combined. Beat in eggs and 2 teaspoons of the vanilla.

    Stir together flour and baking soda in another large bowl; stir in oats. Gradually stir flour mixture into beaten mixture. Set aside.

    Combine reserved 2 tablespoons butter with sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips in a medium saucepan. Cook over low heat until chocolate melts, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in 3/4 cup of almonds and remaining 2 teaspoons vanilla.

    Press 2/3 (about 3-1/3 cups) of oat mixture into bottom of an ungreased 15-by-10-by-1-inch jelly-roll pan. Spread chocolate mixture over oats mixture. Using fingers, dot remaining oat mixture over the chocolate. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup almonds.

    Bake about 25 minutes or until top is lightly browned (chocolate mixture will still look moist). Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into 2-x-1-inch bars.
