Butterscotch Revel Bars

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on June 7, 2012

Welcome to Sweet Tooth Friday, a day devoted to all things sweet. Feel free to drool over today’s recipe, link up your own sweet recipes, and visit a few of the other sweet, sweet recipes shared by fellow bloggers.


Hello Friday, how are you? This week has been super, ultra crazy. A week of insane recipe creating, photographing, eating and sharing. I’m ready for a treat, anyone else?

On Monday I enticed you all with chocolate revel bars. Rich and gooey, decadent and fudgey. A sugar cookie and oat crust. These are by far one of my favorite bar recipes. In the world.

But I couldn’t stop at just chocolate revel bars. Oh no, I had to make the recipe my way. Without chocolate.


I don’t know why, but I had to try. I just had to.

And so, butterscotch revel bars were born. And now, after making you wait all week long, I’m sharing the recipe.

Butterscotch Revel Bars Recipe

Gooey butterscotch with hints of caramel layered on top of the cookie-oat crust.

It’s butterscotch cookie bar brilliance.

Brilliance I say.

Now, before you get all worried, I’m not trading butterscotch in for chocolate. That will never happen. In my book, chocolate revel bars will always win. Hands down. But…these butterscotch revel bars, they keep me coming back. The hint of caramel, it beckons to me. It keeps me up at night. The extra gooeyness, I can’t get enough. There’s just something so unexpectedly good about these bars.

Butterscotch Revel Bars Recipe

Unexpectedly good. And sinful. Oh so sinful.

These are amazing! Oh my I must have them.

These look super! Butterscotch isn’t something I normally crave, or even think about, to be honest. But whenever I eat it, I question myself why I don’t bake more with it!

Thank you so much for hosting this great party. I enjoy coming by whenever I can :) Have a fabulous weekend!

These look really good! I suppose you could really make them any flavor you want by changing the flavor of the chocolate chips. I think mint chocolate ones sound good to me right about now! (visiting from WFMW)

Having read this I thought it was very informative. I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put
this article together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and
leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

Great information. Lucky me I ran across your site by chance
(stumbleupon). I’ve saved it for later!
