A Baking Break

I have taken a little break from junking this week to be the cookie queen. My son's football team has a team dinner the night before a game. My dear friend that I teach preschool with is hosting tonight's dinner (the senior parents host). 45 hungry football players will be descending upon her home at about 6:00 this evening. I volunteered to bake all of the sweets for her. I have been baking all week and freezing it. I decided this morning I needed a little more so I baked up these favorites--chocolate revel bars, along with 4 batches of Rice Krispie treats.

Chocolate Revel Bars
1 cup butter, softened plus 2 Tb.
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups quick oats
1 12 oz pkg of chocolate chips (I use milk chocoloate)
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream 1 cup butter, sugar, vanilla and eggs. Add dry ingredients, except oatmeal.

When mixed well, add oatmeal. Dough will be thick. Press 2/3's of the dough into the bottom of a jelly roll pan.

Melt the chocolate, sweetened milk, and remaining 2 Tb butter in the microwave. Stir (taste!) and pour over the oatmeal dough. Blob the remaining dough over the top of the chocolate.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly browned.

MMM! Enjoy! Now I can go paint, before the rain hits. We have a storm heading in.


  1. Yummy is all I can say! Just yummylicous! Have fun at the game. Love high school football games!

  2. I'm gonna try those chocolate revel bars this weekend. I know the boys are gonna love them! My little boy starts flag football soon for the first time. I will have to make them for him and his little team mates!
