Happy New Year!

I'm posting my first recipe and it isn't one of my tried, true, and traditional recipes, but a new one I made tonight. You're probably wondering why I would indulge in such a decadent goodie. I am suppose to be losing weight, but we're watching a movie and playing games and I thought a treat would just add to the fun. Happy New Year, it's a keeper!

Chewy Chocolate Bars

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt chocolate chips with milk; set aside. Cream butter and brown sugar until soft; beat in eggs. Blend flour, rolled oats, and salt into creamed mixture. Spread half of batter into greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Spread chocolate mixture on top of batter. Spread remaining batter over chocolate layer. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
