Chocolate Revel Bars is a type of chewy crunchy dessert / snack made with oats, nuts, chocolates and condensed milk, it’s one of the best thing you can make with oatmeal. From the name alone you know this will be good as revel means “To take great pleasure or delight”, and that’s what you experience for every bite of this delicious treat.

I totally forgotten this bar but back in the Philippines one of my best friend who happens to own a family restaurant sells this type of dessert and we really liked it. His mom then knew about this hence every time I visit their place they give us a box containing 2 dozen of this delight he even catered this plus 200+ chicken inasal quarters as an add-on to my weddings menu. Recently a colleague of mine asked me whether I have a recipe of it which reminded me of those day, I told him no but I then hurried up and made it one weekend to share this wonderful recipe.

  4. marie says:

    Hello! Does it have to be rolled oats or instant oats is okay?

  5. Bianca says:

    Hello! Do you recommend making some of the parts ahead (e.g. leaving the chocolate mixture in the fridge overnight for stronger chocolate flavor)? Or better to just make them all at the same time? Thank you 🙂

  6. Maria says:

    Hello, can we use cooking oil instead of butter? If yes, what cooking oil can you suggest?

  7. HF says:

    Hi! Could this be baked in a microwave? I don’t have a gas oven kasi. Thank you!

  8. Alice says:

    Hi. Did you use instant oats in your recipe? Thanks.

  9. Alice says:

    Hi. Cn I use a glass cookware like pyrex to bake this? Thanks.

  10. Gail says:


    I only have a 2×2 square pan and just planning to bake this in batches. Is the baking time still the same?

  11. Lucy says:

    baked it for the first time and its really good!!! satisfied my craving 🙂 thank you so much for sharing

  12. Kamylle says:

    Hi how long should i put it in the toaster oven?

    • Raymund says:

      Probably the same but make the temperature lower, around 170 since the elements are nearer to what you are baking. Just check it occasionally specially at the 20-25 minute mark.

  13. JM says:

    Hi can i use cashews instead of walnuts?

  14. Precy says:

    Tried it. So delicious! My kids love it. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Genica says:

    I just tried your recipe!!! It was so goooood!!!

  16. Jazz says:

    Hi, may I know how many square pcs can I make for the pan size? Can I use rectangular pan instead orlf square? Thank you!

  17. Ann says:

    Hi! Where do you bake these bars, on the middle rack or bottom rack? And do you have any tips on how to avoid having a dry crust? Thanks!

  18. Faye says:

    Hello! Can I use chocolate bar instead of chocolate chips? If yes, how many ounces of chocolate bar should I use? Thank you!

  19. Jamina says:

    Hi! Mine came out a little too chocolatey that it was hard to cut into bars. I used a little less than 1 1/2 cups of choco chips. Is it still okay to reduce to 1 1/4 but same amount of condensed milk and other top layer ingredients? I used 9×13 pan.

  20. Pam says:

    Thank you for this recipe. It came out really good. Just too much for us though. That said, can I cut all the ingredients to half and bake in an 8×8/7×7 pan? Will I still bake it for 30mins or less? Thank you!

  21. Jhen says:

    Made this just now but the chocolate does not set.. ano po pwde ko gawin??

    • Raymund says:

      Apologies for the late reply, what happened to the chocolate? it is slightly melted? It is supposed to be like that, a bit melted after baking, it gives that gooey texture. Let me know

  22. Pauline says:

    This is a great recipe. I just used 1 and 1/2 cup of brown sugar instead of 2 cups to lessen the sweetness. After baking i cooled it at the kitchen counter and placed it in the fridge so the chocolate could set and be fudgy.

  23. Chris says:

    Hello! Is QUAKER Whole Grain Rolled Oats okay? Or its grains are to big for the recipe?

  24. coco melon says:

    pede poba kremdensada?
    for substitute condensed milk

  25. Mika says:

    Hi! I just tried making this and I had problems with the chocolate part. It did not set and was still runny. The bars did not hold shape when I cut it, para silang nag lava flow. I followed instructions on oven temp and time, and cooled it for almost 24 hours before cutting. Is there a way to check it if it’s done baking, like inserting a toothpick or something. Or maybe I did not cook the chocolate-condensed milk mixture long enough? Do I need to cook it until thickened over the stove?

    • Raymund says:

      Sorry to hear that, probably the chocolate and condensed milk mixture was not cooked enough as this should hold its shape. I am also interested on what type / brand of chocolate chips did you use, this might contribute to why it did not set.

      • Mika says:

        I used dark chocolate bars that i chopped up. I made this recipe again, cooking the condensed milk mixture longer over the stove and added 5 minutes to my baking time. Now it’s holding its shape better. My friends and family love it. Thank you for this recipe.

  26. Sweet says:

    Hi. I tried the recipe. It came out perfect actually, except for the chocolatey part. It was so hard, parang the tira2x candy. What could I change on my next batch? I used the Bensdorf powdered cocoa.

  27. Alyssa says:

    Hi please help out. Mine came out too soft. I followed all steps but the chocolate part became too runny, and the oatmeal part is not holding shape. Its like melting.

    • Raymund says:

      Sorry to hear that, what cookware do you use? Glass or Metal? Also what type and brand of chocolate chips are you using? And for the oven, was it preheated before it went in?
      If its runny try to cook it a bit further with the condensed milk.
