Revel Bars

It is nice to be back here blogging again and I have to thank my sister for that. Most of these days, I usually work in the kitchen whipping up some snacks for my daughter to take to school. I am not a  big fan of giving her factory-made biscuits (sorry, Oreo) for her to eat during snack time. Recently, I have been hooked to making cookies and today, I will be sharing with you how to make Revel Bars. It’s so good and simple that you would want to try it yourself at home.

Revel Bar Recipe

1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 tbsp baking soda
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 ½ cups cake flour
3 cups oatmeal
1 ½ cup chocolate chips*
4 ounces condensed milk*
2 tbsp butter*

This particular cookie bar is made up of two layers which include the white cookie dough and the chocolate layer. Divide all ingredients into half except for those that comes with the asterisk (*) sign which will be used to create the chocolate layer.

For the cookie dough, cream together butter, sugar, baking soda and eggs in a bowl. Add the vanilla and mix well. Gradually add the flour and still in oats. Mix well and set aside.

On a separate pan, make the chocolate layer by melting the chocolate chips, condensed milk and butter. Set aside. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 350-Fahrenheit or 170-Celsius.

Press 2/3 of the cookie dough on a cookie sheet (preferably 15x10x1). Pat the cookie dough and spread the chocolate layer on top. Using the remaining cookie dough that you have set aside, crumble it on top of the chocolate layer therefore you have a chocolate layer sandwiched between two cookie dough layers (see the two layers below?). Bake for 25 minutes until the first layer becomes golden brown.

Note: I do not know why they are even called revel bars but probably eating it would make you want to paint the town red (look up the definition of revel in the dictionary and you will know what I mean). Enjoy!
