My revel bars have been a constant hit with friends and family, and it has gained me loyal customers over the years.
I am sharing this secret recipe because I’ll be 36 in a few days and I see no connection LOL Seriously, as I grow older and wiser, I see no point in just getting — I realize that I should also give. This is just a start baby!
This recipe has been used for years and it never failed me aside from that one time when my oven played tricks on me and every pan came out really, really burnt. I found out later that the oven was already tired and needed some rest. RIP, oven.
This recipe and instruction is for newbies. If you’re a pro then one look will all it take for you to ‘get’ the recipe.
I don’t know how revel bars got its name but basically it is made of oats so it’s healthy in a way, hehe.
CHEWY REVEL BARS RECIPE
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Oven temp: 350 degrees, preheated for 10 minutes if you have a small oven, longer if you have a bigger one.
Makes 16 pcs of 2×2 bars
What you need:
- 2 medium size bowls
- microwave or double boiler
- microwave safe bowl to melt your milk and chocolates in
Dry (mix in 1 bowl)
- 1 1/2 cup cooking oats (not instant, but cooking oats — for them to be chewy and nutty and everything nice, use Simply Cereal Apple and Cranberry)
- 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Wet (mix in another bowl)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Milk and Chocolate Mixture (Filling)
- 1/2 can condensed milk
- 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Easy Steps (woot!):
- Mix the dry ingredients all together starting from the #1 ingredient. Set aside.
- Mix the wet ingredients all together starting from the #1 ingredient. Set aside.
- Pour your condensed milk and dark chocolate chips together in a bowl then –>
- Melt them via microwave: remember to stir every 30 seconds so the chocolate won’t burn. Add in the vanilla and mix again.
- Melt via double boiler: boil the water first and place your bow on top of it and thoroughly stir until the chocolate is fully melted. Add in the vanilla and mix again.
- Pour your dry ingredients unto your bowl of wet ingredients and thoroughly mix it (but do not over mix!) and press two thirds of this mixture on your pan.
- Spread the filling on top but remember not to put too much or else you’ll get pouring chocolate lava once it cooks, not good.
- Pour dollops of the remaining oat mixture and pop into the oven. Let it cook for 25-30 minutes or until the top turns golden brown.
- Let it cool and refrigerate for a few hours (overnight is best!)
- Cut into 2×2 slices. Enjoy!
