Chocolate Revel Bars {aka Michelle Cookies}

I made these cookie bars today for the first time in a sweet forever and realized I had never shared this recipe. Growing up we called them "Michelle Cookies" because my sisters good friend Michelle LOVED them.  They are super yummy and pretty easy to throw together- you might even have the ingredients in your pantry right now!


3 cups oatmeal
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together 1 cup butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Mix in eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla. In another bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda, and 1 teaspoon salt; stir into butter mixture. Set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan, heat sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons butter, and 1/2 teaspoon salt over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla.
  4. Pat 2/3 of the oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread chocolate mixture evenly over the top, and dot with remaining oat mixture.  {I usually wet my hands and pat out the other part of the mixture to cover the chocolate mixture}
  5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in preheated oven. Let cool on a wire rack, then cut into bars.
