Super Easy Chocolate Bars
slightly adapted from Biggest Book of Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
1/2 tsp vanilla
For the crust: In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter on high for thirty seconds. Add sugar and salt. Beat until combined, scraping down occasionally. Add the flour and mix until combined. Press two thirds of the crust mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.
For the filling, combine the milk and chocolate. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 35 minutes or until golden. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
