Chocolate Chip Day

In honor of Chocolate Chip Day I prepared…
Chocolate Chip Chewy Bars
1 (lb) package light brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter, softened
3 eggs beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup sweetened, flaked coconut
2 cups pecan, chopped
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degree F.  Lightly grease a 9×13 baking pan.  In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients, reserving 1/2 cup chocolate chips, vegetable oil and chopped almonds for topping.  Spread batter evenly in prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. or until a toothpick inserted through the middle comes out clean.  Cool bars completely before adding topping.

Topping:  melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips.  Blend vegetable oil with melted chocolate.  Drizzle over bars.  Sprinkle almonds on top of chocolate.  When chocolate is set…cut into 1 inch squares.

I also prepared Squirrel Bars.  Recipe coming soon…………
