Recipe: Fudge Revel Bites

Warning:  These are not healthy.  These are not quick and easy.  What they are is dangerously delicious.  And bite sized.  One in a lunch occasionally would be a fun and decadent treat.

The cafe where we go for coffee at work sells revel bars, and my co-workers and I have a really hard time showing restraint with them.  They have them about once a week, and they go so well with coffee...

So, when I found this recipe, I knew I had to give it a try.  And because I love mini things, I had to try making them in mini-muffin tins.  The recipe as stated has about 4 times too much chocolate fudge filling.. the remainder is sitting in my fridge, waiting for a good idea.  Any suggestions?  Other than eating it with a spoon?  Maybe we can dip strawberries and bananas in it... I am posting the recipe with 1/4 amounts.  There will probably still be leftovers.

The only change I made to the recipe itself was to use fat free sweetened condensed milk in the filling.  It's what I had on hand.  And, it worked perfectly.

Fudge Revel Bites
(Modified from Tasty Kitchen)

Cookie base: 
1 c butter
2 c brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2-½ c flour
3 c rolled oats

Fudge Filling
1 tsp butter
~3.5 oz  fat free sweetened condensed milk
~3 oz by weight milk chocolate chips (about 1/2 c)

Cream together 1 cup of butter, brown sugar, and eggs. Add the vanilla. Add 1 teaspoon salt, baking soda, and flour. Mix. Add oats and mix well.  Line mini muffin cups with liners and spray them with cooking spray. Scoop about a tablespoon of the dough into each cup and flatten, leaving a small indentation.  There will be leftover dough.  This is for the top of the bites.

Put the filling ingredients into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds and stir. Keep cooking at 15-second increments and stirring until melted.


Spoon a small amount into indentations in the dough.

Take bits of the remaining dough and flatten over the filling.  If some filling oozes out, all the better.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
This is one cut open.  Fudgey deliciousness.

  2. It has oats, so that means it's healthy, right?

  3. Right, if you ignore the cup of butter. ;)
    (I am going to try a slightly less decadent version soon... with all that leftover filling!)
