Butterscotch Revel Bars

Chocolate revel bars were kind of a staple of ours when I was growing up. I imagine my Mom made them for us because they make a large amount and contain easy ingredients. Instead of using chocolate chips for the middle filling, I used butterscotch chips. They turned out great!

They tasted almost like caramel in the middle!

Butterscotch Revel Bars based on BHG.com’s recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1 14 ounce can (1-1/4 cups) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 11 ounce package (about 2 cups) butterscotch chip pieces
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
Directions
  1. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the butter. In a large mixing bowl beat the remaining butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add brown sugar; beat until well mixed. Beat in eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla. In another large bowl stir together flour, cinnamon and baking soda; stir in oats. Gradually stir dry mixture into beaten mixture. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan combine the reserved butter, the sweetened condensed milk, and butterscotch pieces. Cook over low heat until butterscotch melts, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in the 2 teaspoons vanilla and nuts.
  3. Press two-thirds (about 3-1/3 cups) of the oat mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Spread butterscotch mixture over the oat mixture. Using your fingers, dot remaining oat mixture over the chocolate.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 25 minutes or until top is lightly browned (chocolate mixture will still look moist). Cool on a wire rack. Cut into 2×1-inch bars. Makes about 75 bars.

I just dot my remaining batter haphazardly on the top.

I added walnuts to only half my pan in case some people didn’t want nuts. Before baking and after.

This is a great recipe for a potluck since it makes a TON of bars!

The middle part was definitely my favorite. Enjoy!
