  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Beat butter in a large mixer bowl until creamy.  Beat in flour, sugar and salt until crumbly.  With floured fingers, press 2 cups crumb mixture onto bottom of greased 13x9x2-inch pan; reserve remaining mixture.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Warm 1 ½ cups chips and condensed milk in a saucepan over low heat until smooth.  Stir in vanilla.  Spread over crust.
