Chocolate Revel Bars
1 - 12 ounce pkg semi sweet chocolate chips (Aunt Edna used just 6 oz)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2-1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking sodea
3 cups oatmeal (I used 1/2 quick and 1/2 regular)
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
Using a double boiler melt chocolate chips in with the condensed milk and margarine.
Add vanilla and set aside until cookie batter is ready.
Cream butter and brown sugar together.
Add eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla and mix.
Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda.
Add along with oatmeal and optional nuts to egg mixture.
Mix just until blended.
Press 2/3 of this mixutre onto bottom of greased 11x15 jelly roll pan or if you like them thicker, a 9x13 baking dish.
I found it easier to press if I wet my hand just a little. The batter didn't stick to my fingers.
Pour chocolate mixutre over oatmeal mixture.
Grab remaing cookie mixutre and crumble over the chocolate.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Should be a nice golden brown color.
Directions say to cut while warm. I tried at 10, 20,30, 40, and 50 min intervals. It was still too soft to cut each of those times. So you'll need to check as you go. --AH HA!! I spoke with the lady who gave me the recipe and she wait until they are almost 100% cooled! LOL
A friend made them for a bake sale we had and they went like hotcakes. I made these for my husband's work today and he said they all really enjoyed them.
