It is back to school time for many people and that means less time in the kitchen for many people or at least a change in schedules.  If you are looking for a quick and easy treat to make for home or your next gathering or meeting, this may be just the thing.  These bars don't require many ingredients and are very easy to mix up in a matter of minutes.  These bars cut easily and travel and store well.  Try them now and you may find you even want to add them to your holiday line up of tasty treats.


1 c. butter softened
½ c. sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
2 c. flour
1 – 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 c. chocolate chips
½ c. chopped pecans
½ tsp. vanilla

For crust, mix butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar & salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in the flour until combined. Press 2/3 of the crust mixture into 9x13 ungreased pan. For filling, in saucepan combine sweetened condensed milk & chips. Cook & stir over low heat until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; stir in nuts and vanilla and spread hot mixture over the crust. Sprinkle remaining crust mixture over chocolate mixture. Bake 350 until golden. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
