Chocolate Revel Bars

Circle B Kitchen

1 cup butter, room temp

2 cups packed brown sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats

1 14-oz. can of sweetened condensed milk

1 12-oz. package chocolate chips

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Mix in eggs and 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Add flour, soda and salt. Stir in oatmeal and mix to combine.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons of butter, sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate chips. Heat on high in microwave for a minute, remove and stir. Heat again, for 30 seconds at a time, until completely melted. (This step could also be done over low heat on the stove). Stir in the 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.

Press two-thirds of the oat mixture into the bottom of a greased and floured 15 x 10 jelly roll pan. My pan wasn't quite that big and they still came out great. Spread chocolate mixture over the oat mixture. Using your fingers, dot remaining oat mixture over the chocolate.

Bake in a 350 degree oven about 20-25 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.
