Revel Bars…tempting for humans…and dogs!

Kelli was home with her beagle puppy, who is all puppy.  Few things are safe when she is around including the Revel Bars I made.  Revel bars a Kramer family favorite.  My hubby says, you can’t go wrong if you mix sweetened condensed milk with chocolate and I think he’s right.  If I make these for an event, these are typically the first bars that are eaten.

RevelBars

Here’s the recipe…
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
3 cups quick oatmeal
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
15 ounces sweetened milk
12 ounces chocolate chips
2 tablespoons vanilla

Cream butter and brown sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Add sifted flour and soda.    Mix in oatmeal. Put 2/3 of mixture in pan and pat out in your greased 11 x 15 pan. If you have trouble spreading the dough out, spray your hands with cooking spray and pat.   Melt chocolate chips with sweetened milk and vanilla.  Add walnuts if desired.  Pour over crust.  Dot the rest of the creamed mixture over the top.  Bake at 350 degrees.  Check them at 20 minutes and bake longer if needed.

I am linking this recipe with Patchwork Times’ What’s Cooking-the sweet and condensed milk version.  To see other sweet and condensed milk recipes, follow this link.

    I love these!! I saw this same recipe in a magazine a few years ago and it’s probably one of my favorite bar recipes. I’ve made them in both a 9 x 13 pan and a jelly roll pan. Both batches were excellent.

    I read this post the other day. This morning I was looking through a cookbook for something for coffee treats. I came upon the recipe for Chocolate Revel Bars. I thought it must be fate. They are cooling now! Thanks for the inspiration.

    My family loves these…We call them Jumbles, I didn’t know they had a more common name. Thanks for sharing!

    Jo great recipe except there is a couple of typos. It should read teaspoons instead of tablespoons in both sections. In another recipe of revel bars they mentioned to save out 2 teaspoons of butter to melt with chocolate.

    Linda…I know it seems odd but this is the recipe we have used for years and years. No typos. I double checked it. I’m sure there are many similar versions. This version happens to be the one that Grandma Kramer made for years and years.
