Everyone's Favorite-Chocolate Rebel Bars

OK...this is my dad's all time favorite treat. You know how they say you marry someone like your father? Well....Paul actually differs from my dad a lot...but these get his vote. Whenever I throw out the question, "What treat do you want me to bake?" he answers ...."Ohhh...chocolate rebel bars. Now...I must point out that I saw these on a blog a few days ago and they were called Chocolate Revel Bars. Is it possible that my family has been saying this wrong for like 20 years?!!! Or, did this other chick get it wrong?! Oh Well...I am a rebel and will therefore keep calling these Chocolate Rebel Bars. So... boo-ya, there ya have it.

I would like to give a grand excuse for my lack of baking lately, but it boils down to this... I am a Pinterest addict. I have a talent of wasting my designated "free" time every day on this new "hobby." I can look at people's outfits and furniture choices for hours. (I don't let myself....thank goodness or I would get nothing done!) I try to limit my daily computer time to about an hour. I promise to turn off Pinterest a little more and blog instead!!! But I do have some AMAZING looking treats I have pinned. I will try them and let you know if they are worth your time!

Throw the following ingredients into your shopping cart...

For the crust: 1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

For the fudgey layer of goodness...
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
2 Tab. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup walnuts
2 tsp. vanilla

Put your apron on and...

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Beat together the butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla for the crust in your mixer. Add in the rest of the crust ingredients. Pat 2/3 of the mixture into a
15 X 10 inch pan. I don't have a 10 X 15 inch pan. I use a 13 X 9 and it works OK.

In a saucepan, heat the milk, chocolate chips, butter, and salt till smooth. Remove from heat and add the nuts and vanilla.

Spread the chocolate, fudgey goodness over the cookie mixture in pan and then dot with the remaining oatmeal mixture. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes.
