These chocolate revel bars are basically gooey oatmeal cookies swimming in a sea of hot fudge, on top of a soft and chewy oatmeal cookie base. I know. I know! They are incredible. They are gooey and fudge-y and the cookie part is so good, there is something almost caramel-y about it. These are my go-to treat to bring to a dinner or party or dinner party and they are ALWAYS a hit! I recommend eating them after a light meal like chicken caesar salad pitas or spinach and feta stuffed chicken to have maximum stomach room so you can eat a lot. Kidding, but not kidding.
These come together pretty easily. There's only one extra step beyond normal cookies, but you don't have to scoop cookies onto a pan, so maybe it's a wash.
Cream the brown sugar and butter in a mixing bowl. Then add the eggs and vanilla and beat on high speed about 2 minutes, until it lightens in color. Add the dry ingredients minus the oats and mix until just combined. Add the oats and again mix until just combined.
For the fudge, simply put all the ingredients together in a saucepan and heat on medium low heat stirring occasionally until everything melts together and it becomes smooth.
Spread 2/3 of the batter along the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13 pan. Pour fudge over top. Using your hands, grab chunks of oatmeal dough and press into cookies of different shapes and sizes. The thickness should be uniform- and press into the fudge.
Bake for 25 minutes. They are finished when the cookies are matte and a toothpick comes out clean. Don't worry about fudge on the toothpick, it's cookie dough you need to worry about here. Enjoy and revel in your chocolate revel bars!!Print
