Wilson Bars

We call them Wilson Bars.  They are really called Revel Bars.  This recipe is my go to recipe for pot lucks, church events, whatever thing I have to go to and bring a large quantity of dessert.  We brought them so much to Church events that people started calling them Wilson Bars.  I got this recipe from my sister - in - law several years ago.  I do not know what her source was.  This recipe is super easy and can be baked as a bar cookie and cut into 4 dozen good sized servings.

Mix -
1C. softened butter or margarine, 3/4 C. Creamy Peanut Butter, 2 C. Brown Sugar, 2 Eggs, 2 tsp. Vanilla and 1 tsp. Baking Soda
in a mixing bowl.
Add 2 1/2 C. Flour and 3 C. Quick Cooking Oats.
On your largest ungreased cookie sheet scoop out
3/4 of the cookie batter.
Save the remaining 1/4 of the batter for later.  Put a sandwich baggie on your hand and press the cookie dough evenly over the cookie sheet.
In a microwave safe bowl put 1 bag of mini chocolate chips and
1 can of sweetened condensed milk.
Microwave on high for 1 minute and stir.
If you still see chocolate chips like I do here then
 microwave for 1 minute more.
Stir until chocolate is glossy.  You will need to work fast as this chocolate will set up quickly.  Pour the glossy chocolate all over your cookie dough that you have spread out on the cookie sheet
and spread it evenly over the top.
You do not need to go clear to the edges.  Take the remaining cookie dough and crumble it all over the top of the chocolate.
Bake at 350* for 20-25 minutes
This is a super fast recipe - and once the pan cools you can cut it in 48 pieces.  I like to cut the pan 4X6 making 24 squares and then cut the squares in half diagonally.  Let me know what you think!
