2 tsp vanilla

In a bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Combine the oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the creamed mixture. Spread two-thirds into an ungreased 15 x 10 inch baking pan. Set aside. For the Filling: Heat the milk, chocolate chips, butter, and salt in a microwave-safe bowl until the chips are melted. Remove from the heat. Stir in the walnuts and vanilla. Spread over the top. Drop the remaining oat mixture by tablespoonfuls over the chocolate. Bake at 350 F. for 20-25 minutes.
