Chocolate Nut Bars

1 3/4 cup all purpose flour 
1 cup granulated sugar 
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into small pieces at room temperature
1 egg 
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk 
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips 
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 13x9 inch pan. 
Sift the flour, sugar, and cocoa together into a large bowl. Add the butter to the mixture and stir until the mixture resembles small crumbs. Add the egg and mix well. Set 1 1/2 cups of the mixture aside and press the rest into the pan. Bake this in the oven for 10 minutes. 
Place the sweetened condensed milk and 1 cup of the chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Stir this mixture before placing it in the microwave for 1-1 1/2 minutes, or until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Pour this evenly over the crust. Add the nuts and remaining chocolate chips to the set aside crumb mixture. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the top of the chocolate and sweetened condensed milk. 
Bake this in the oven for about 25 minutes. When done baking, allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
