Chocolate Revel Bars

Do you like chocolate?  Do you like granola?  Then, you will like this tasty treat.  It’s an incredibly unhealthy, chocolate-ly granola bar.  I made it recently for a pot luck at church, and it was lapped up.  Thankfully, it’s a big recipe, and I had a whole pan still waiting for me at home.  😀  I hope you enjoy it!

************************************************************

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups AP flour
  • 3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans*
  • 2 tsp. vanilla

Directions:

  1. Set aside 2 tablespoons of butter.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat remaining butter for about 30 seconds.
  3. Add brown sugar and baking soda.  Beat until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl.
  4. Beat in eggs and 2 teaspoons of vanilla until combined.
  5. Beat in as much flour as you can, and mix in the rest with a spoon.
  6. Stir in oats.
  7. For the filling, in a medium saucepan, combine reserved butter, chocolate chips, and sweetened condensed milk.  Cook over low heat until chocolate is melted, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat.
  8. Stir in nuts* and 2 teaspoons of vanilla.
  9. Press 2/3 of the oat mixture (about 3 1/3 cups) onto the bottom of an ungreased 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan.  (I don’t have one, so I actually used two 9-inch cake pans and one 8-inch cake pan.)
  10. Spread filling evenly over the oat mixture.
  11. Dot remaining oat mixture on top.
  12. Bake at 350-degrees for about 25 minutes or until top is lightly browned (chocolate filling will still look moist).
  13. Cool on wire rack.  Cut into bars.

Makes about 60 bars.  (I told you it was a big recipe.)

*I forgot to add the nuts, so they’re optional.
