Friday Food Craft: Chocolate Revel Bars
If you like oatmeal cookies and chocolate you will love these! They are a family favorite and disappear immediately. Enjoy! :)
You will need:
(for the cookie crust)
1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups brown sugar (I use light brown)
2 tsp. Vanilla
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour
3 cups oatmeal (regular not quick oats)
Mix together and put 2/3 into a 13" x9" pan and spread out evenly.
For the filling:
1 (12 oz)bag chocolate chips
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup nuts (I used almonds, but any nut will be fine)
In a double boiler, melt the butter, chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add the vanilla and nuts and mix until incorporated.
Spread the chocolate mixture over your cookie crust, then dot the remaining cookie mixture over the top of your bars. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Cool and serve!
These freeze very well, and are a Christmas demand by many from my mother.
