Gooey Bars

These bars are really good. Beware- they need to rest overnight (or all day if you make them in the morning) to really set up. If you can't wait and you eat them ahead of time, just know that they will be super gooey. (Can you tell I am not patient?)
Gooey Bars
2 sticks butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 1/2 c. quick-cooking oats
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 c. walnuts, chopped (or peanuts or pecans, whatever you have)
1 can sweetened condensed milk (SCM)
4 c. miniature marshmallows
1 c. chocolate chips
Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla for a few minutes. Add in the flour, oats, soda and salt until crumbly. Reserve 1 c. of the  mixture. Pat the rest into a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and pour the SCM on the crust. Then layer on the marshmallows, chips and nuts. Finally sprinkle the rest of the crust on the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes until browned. Let it cool and wait overnight before cutting- if you can stand waiting. If not, have a fork ready.
