Oatmeal Fudge Bars

2 Cups Brown Sugar, packed
1 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons butter, softened and divided
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract, divided
2 Eggs
2-1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Salt, divided
3 Cups Quick Oats
1-14 ounce can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1-12 ounce bag Chocolate Chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix brown sugar, one cup of butter, one teaspoon of vanilla and the eggs. Sift together flour, baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt; stir in oats and add to egg mixture. Mix well. Reserve 1/3 of the mixture; press remaining oatmeal mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, condensed milk and chocolate chips in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until chocolate is melted; remove from heat. Stir in remaining vanilla and salt. Spread over oatmeal mixture in pan. Drop reserved oatmeal mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls onto chocolate mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. (don't overbake-I baked them for 25 minutes). Cut into bars while warm.
