Chocolate Revel Bars

I had to make snack for Roberts PSSA class. He requested these and since the school doesn't have a sugar ban I could make them.

Chocolate Revel Bars

1C. butter, softened
2C. packed brown sugar
1t. baking soda
2 eggs
2t. vanilla
2 1/2C flour
3C. rolled oats

1 1/2C. chocolate chips
1 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2t vanilla
1/2C chopped walnuts or pecans(optional)I don't use the nuts because my younger son has a tree nut allergy. Anytime you make a snack for school, make sure it is labeled.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Set aside 2T. butter for use in the filling.
cream the butter and brown sugar, add the baking soda. Then add the eggs and 2t. vanilla and beat until combined. Beat in as much flour and then stir in the rest. Stir in the rolled oats.
For the filling, in a sauce pan, combine the butter, sweetened condensed milk and chocolate. Cook over low heat until the chocolate is melted then take off the heat and add the vanilla.(if using nuts add now)

Press 2/3 of the oat mixture in the bottom of an ungreased 15x10x1 pan. I use an icing spatula to spread as it is sticky.
Spread the filling over top evenly and then dot with remaining oats mixture.
Bake about 25 minutes or until the top is light brown.
Let them cool and cut them into bars.
This recipe is out of the Better Home and Gardens Cook Book.


  1. Hello new friend, I just had to come see this henery Milker you talked about. Looking forward to following along with your blog. I am new to the goat milking myself. Been at it for only two weeks and looking to increase my herd next season too.
    That quilt block is the cutes thing I have ever seen. I bought some really sturdy reuseable grocery bags at the farm store that were clearenced out for a dollar and I thought for that price I could use them for the bones and cover them with cute fabric on the front. I think I am going to try this block for one of them. Just adorable. Did you make it?

    So glad you commented , so g;ad I found you.

  2. Hi Thanks for stopping by. I love the Henry Milker. I laughed when I saw Mike had commented on it. My girl friend called me and told me it was there. She said You called it over priced! Well, I'm not the only one who said that, most of the stuff I have read said it cost alot for a few tubes and a jar but it works great.
    Yes I made the quilt square. I am quite proud of it I even free handed the stitching it's not perfect but then neither am I. Of course it's still a square and I haven't finished it.
    I like your idea about the bags I'd like to see that.
    Thanks for finding me

  3. This recipe looks great, I will have to give it a try (I developed a tree-nut allergy myself- so I know how your son feels sigh...) Thanks for the new recipe- April
