Candy Bar Bars

Candy Bar Bars

I hoard a lot of baking ingredients. I buy in bulk when I go to the US and if there is a handful of chocolate chips left in a bag I’ll save them. As a result I have about 10 bags with a few chips left in each.

In an effort to use them all up before they expire I was on the lookout for a jumble or everything cookie. I used one whole Crunch bar, some leftover mini M&M’s and a bag of mini peanut butter cups. I still have a huge stash even after I made these!

The recipe called for a 9 x 13 pan but I only have a  9 x9 pan. I increased the baking time by about 20 minutes. I should have taken these out a few minutes sooner (doh!) they were good the first day but dried out pretty quickly.

3 cups plain flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F/180 C and line a 9 x 13 pan with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time and beat until combined. Beat in the vanilla.
  3. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt and beat until just combined. Stir in the candy pieces by hand.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and spread evenly with a spatula. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Cut into bars once completely cool.
