Mom's Bday (Revel Bars)

I also wanted to make revel bars for the party coz I love it really much! Hehe.

Ingredients: 3 c. Quick cooking oats, 2 c. packed brown sugar, 2 1/2 c. all purpose flour, 1 bar butter, 1 tsp. salt, 2 pcs. eggs, 1 tsp. baking soda, 2 tsps. vanilla extract.







Cream butter, add sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs.








Meanwhile, sift flour together with baking powder and salt. Mix together with oats.







Pour in flour mixture into butter mixture, mixing well using a wooden spoon.







It would then become like this.








Make the chocolate: 1 1/2 cocoa powder, 2 tbsps. butter, 1 cup condensed milk, 1/2 tsp. salt.
Heat all ingredients over low heat in a medium saucepan, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from heat.





Press 2/3 of the oat mixture into the bottom of a slightly greased 9x13" pan or wider. Spread chocolate over the top and dot with the remaining mixture. It should look something like this. Bake for 30-35 mins at 350 F.






How it looks like when cooked. Cool completely before cutting into bars.








Already cut in bars, placed in paper cups.








Ooh la la...








I got a chewy soft and fudgy chocolate bars.

Hello! sorry for the late reply.. it's 1 1/2 cup, it was shown on making the chocolate part. You can also use chocolate chips if you want. ^_^

hi there! i tried this and i think i did not make it right but it still tasted amazing. my chocolate part of the bar is still quite watery. when you put it in the saucepan when will you stop? how can you describe the consistency of the chocolate part?
salamat!

You can try to cook the chocolate mixture a little bit more if you want. Just be careful not to burn it. The mixture will not become watery because we're using condensed milk. Consistency is not too thick but not watery either (still pourable and spreadable). Also try to bake your revel bars longer as you may have underbaked it. A simple tip to achieve chewy revel bars is to refrigerate the 'oatmeal mixture' for at least 30mins before baking it. :)

Let's try bars this time!

I was quite bored at home, craving for something sweet to eat again. Seems like I'm starting to have a sugar addiction..my system gets restless if I can't eat anything sweet in a day!! Will I get diabetes from this?!

Since I can't help myself, and my hands are itching to bake anyway, I've thought about trying bars this time. There was this recipe from a cookbook that I planned to try when time and money allows me, now I think it's about time to try this out. They call it Cafe Bars.

The recipe actually calls for a coffee liquor, since we don't have it available at home, and I don't have the time to check on it in malls, I decided to make a homemade coffee liquor, which recipe I found on this site: http://liquor.suite101.com/article.cfm/homemade_coffee_liquor_recipe.

Like the usual brownie procedure, I melted the butter and mixed cocoa with it in medium heat, removed mixture from heat and added sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, coffee powder, salt and folded in the p…
