Frank Rijkaard's men were in firm control of the time following their 3-0 first leg win, but were caught out at Camp Nou.
Things looked rosy early on when Samuel Eto'o raced from the half-way line to fire the home side in front.
However, Barca were hit with a double blow when Dani turned the contest around with a quick-fire brace.
The striker was on hand to drill home at the back post after 23 minutes and shortly after slotted home from Oleguer's poor clearance.
Barca should have levelled matters, but Deco and Ronaldinho collided with each other in the box when well-placed to score.
Betis were unable to pull another goal back that would have set up a frenetic finish leaving Barca to scoop the first silverware of the season.
