Chocolate Revel Bars

Sweet, sinful and delicious. A nice gift to give away this holiday season.


  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 cups quick cooking rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts, chopped


1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease an 8 x 12-inch pan.

2. Beat together butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl on low speed.

3. Add eggs one at a time. Then add the vanilla.

4. In a separate bowl, combine together the flour, oats and baking soda. Mix well. Then gradually add to the butter mixture.

5. Mix until it forms into a soft dough.

6. Reserve 1 cup of the dough. Place the rest of the dough in the pan. Spread and pat the dough evenly on the pan. Sprinkle a little flour over the dough if it gets too sticky to handle.

7. Sprinkle the chopped walnuts evenly over the dough.

8. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, place the condensed milk and bittersweet chocolate. Cook over low heat. Mix just until the chocolate is melted. Add the 2 tablespoon of butter and mix until butter is melted. Remove from heat.

9. Drizzle the chocolate mixture over the dough and walnuts, making sure everything is covered. Use a spatula to spread the chocolate evenly.

10. Then sprinkle the remaining dough over the chocolate mixture. Pinch some dough and drop it over the chocolate mixture. Distribute the dough evenly over the top.

11. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until edges are browned and center feels firm. Cool completely before cutting into 2 x 2 inch squares.
