Chocolate and peanut butter are at it again – this time in oatmeal bar cookie form!
We’ve been over this before: chocolate and peanut butter win. Always. In whatever form. Peanut butter cookie dough brownies, peanut butter eggs a la Reese’s, oatmeal cookies with peanut butter and chocolate…and today they are at it again.
I don’t know exactly what a “revel bar” is, but if these bar cookies are true revel bars, then revel bars are fantastic and the world needs more of them. I do know that “revel bars” are an accurate name for these, because you will certainly take great pleasure or delight in eating them.
How could you not? A layer of chocolate and peanut butter sandwiched between two layers of chewy, sweet peanut butter and oats. There is no way you can go wrong with that.
A short post today, I know, but I think you should go make these and let the cookies speak for themselves.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Revel Bars
from It Bakes Me Happy
For the peanut butter layers
- 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 3 cups old-fashioned oats
For the chocolate layer
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 12 oz (1 bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 14 oz (1 can) sweetened condensed milk (I used fat free, mostly because it was on sale)
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13 pan.
For the peanut butter layers: Cream together butter and 1/4 cup peanut butter in a large bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer, add brown sugar and continue to mix. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla.
In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and oats. Add dry ingredients to peanut butter mixture and mix until completely incorporated. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the prepared pan so that it covers the entire bottom.
For the chocolate layer: In a medium saucepan, melt 1/2 cup peanut butter, chocolate chips, and sweetened condensed milk over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Assembly: Spread the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter/oat mixture in the pan. Crumble the remaining peanut butter/oat mixture over the chocolate layer.
Bake for about 25 minutes or until the top is light golden brown. Cool before slicing and serving.
