Bar cookies filled with chocolate—and butterscotch—chips and finished off with a chocolatey drizzle won't fail to please. The sprinkling of chopped pecans is nice too.
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, divided
3 tablespoons butterscotch chips
3 tablespoons chopped pecans
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes or until mixture resembles damp sand. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until blended. Stir in 3 tablespoons chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. Spread batter evenly into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle batter with nuts; lightly press into batter with fingers. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a rack. Cut into 16 2- to 3-inch squares.
Place remaining 1 tablespoon chips in a small heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal. Microwave on high 1 minute or until melted. Snip a hole in 1 corner of bag; drizzle chocolate over bars.
I just made these, and immediately got an account on here just so I could review it. These are AMAZING. Didn't do the final semi-sweet melted chocolate drizzle on the top but it's wonderful without it. Light tasting, fabulous flavor, quick and easy to make. This will now be a year-round staple.
