I got this recipe for CHOCOLATE REVEL BARS many years ago, and it's a favorite of my husband.  The hearty, sweet, chocolaty, oatmeal bar is great warm with a glass of milk, or, as I first introduced them to Terry, packed into a lunch.  They're easy to make because you just turn into a 9X13 pan, bake, then cut into large bars.  

2 cubes butter (or 1/2 butter, 1/2 margarine)
2 cups brown sugar (or 1 cup white, 1 cup brown sugar)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon soda
1 1/2 cups flour
4 cups quick oats
1 cup chopped nuts
1 pkg milk chocolate chips
1 can SWEETENED condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon water
Cream room temperature butter with sugar. Beat well.  Add eggs, one at a time, blending well after each addition.  Add vanilla.  Add dry ingredients, the oatmeal and finally, the nuts.  Reserve out 2 cups of the cookie mixture and press the rest into a greased 9X13 pan. Set aside.  Melt chocolate chips over hot, not boiling water, or by the instructions on the package for melting in the microwave.  Add butter and stir until melted.  Add sweetened condensed milk, salt and vanilla.  Add water and stir well.  Pour filling over the cookie mixture in the 9X13 pan.  Crumble the reserved 2 cups oatmeal cookie mixture on top of filling.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until done.  After baking, let set up before cutting into bars.  (Or you can spoon it out into individual servings in a bowl or plate before it's set up, but it will be a little runny).  Men love this hearty bar!
