Chocolate Revel Bars

Directions

  1. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the butter or margarine. In a large mixing bowl beat the remaining butter or margarine with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar; beat until well mixed. Beat in eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla. In another large bowl stir together flour and baking soda; stir in oats. Gradually stir dry mixture into beaten mixture. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan combine the reserved butter or margarine, the sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate pieces. Cook over low heat until chocolate melts, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in walnuts and the 2 teaspoons vanilla.
  3. Press two-thirds (about 3-1/3 cups) of the oat mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Spread chocolate mixture over the oat mixture. Using your fingers, dot remaining oat mixture over the chocolate.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 25 minutes or until top is lightly browned (chocolate mixture will still look moist). Cool on a wire rack. Cut into 2x1-inch bars. Makes about 75 bars.

From the Test Kitchen

Line the baking pan with foil, extending the foil over edges of pan. Prepare and bake bars in foil-lined pan as above. Cool; lift bars out of pan on the foil. Place uncut bars in freezer bag or container. Seal, label, date, and freeze up to 1 month. Thaw bars at room temperature about 15 minutes. Once thawed, cut into bars.

These bars were delicious!! I made them for my family and they were half gone within an hour! I forgot to add the condensed milk to the chocolate and instead poured it on top and it was amazing. (Just make sure to let the bars cool completely and harden a bit if you use this method because otherwise they will be very difficult to remove cleanly from the pan).

I literally got a thank you note, photo and medals (!) because I sent these bars to my son and his unit when they were in Afhanistan. I sent a lot of things, but always had to include these as they were the favorite, and at least 3 of the men mentioned them specifically in the thank you letter.

I made these and took to a dinner for New Year's Eve last year at a friends' home. They LOVED them and everyone I've made them for have asked for the recipe. You won't be disappointed in this one! Scrumptious :) As I recall, I used the recipe exactly as written and the extra 2 tsp. of vanilla did not adversely affect the outcome at all :)
