|Dark Chocolate Butterscotch Bars|
Dark Chocolate Butterscotch Bars meet all of my perfect cookie requirements. The bars cut from the middle of the pan stay chewy while the ones around the edge of the pan have a buttery, crunchy crust. The only problem with these treats is that they disappear too quickly.
Dark Chocolate Butterscotch Bars
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 3/4 cups brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups dark chocolate chips, divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
Beat butter, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in a large bowl until creamy. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat in eggs. Gradually beat flour mixture into butter mixture. Stir in 1 cup of the chocolate chips. Spread into prepared pan and sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top.
Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan. Invert pan on a cutting board, remove parchment and cut into bars.
