What: The Devil Wears ChocolateWhy: Treat. It’s always treat.How Much: Cookies – 5$ Candy – 5$. Both at the same time – priceless
Halloween is a big deal. You may be excited for the costumes, the parties, or you may be like us and just pumped for the candy. Maybe you’ll buy the bulk bags the day after Halloween for cheap or maybe you’ll stock up all week, or maybe you haven’t let go of childhood and you still plan on trick-or-treating. Whatever your source of candy, why not add butter and sugar to make it into these devilishly Ghoul-d cookie-bars. Whether you make it for friends or just for the sugar rush, these holiday treats are a new twist on an old favourite. Here’s something you’re not going to want to give away to the neighbourhood kids, even if they’re cute and dressed up as your favourite star wars character.
Layer 1:1 c butter1 ½ c brown sugar2 eggs1 tsp vanilla1 tsp baking powder1 tsp baking soda½ tsp salt (or to taste)2 ½ flour¾ chocolate chips or other chocolate candies
Layer 2: a handful of marshmallows broken into bits (or a few spoons of fluff)
any candy you want!!!
Layer 3:At least 1 c of chocolate chips½ c butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350
Blend together sugar and butter. Mix in eggs. Add vanilla, baking power, soda and salt. Blend in flour. Mix in chocolate chips and or candy.
Spread this layer evenly over your greased 9×13 in pan.
Sprinkle the ingredients of layer 2 over layer 1.
Cover the entire thing in chocolate and butterscotch chips.
Place in oven. Remove after ten or fifteen minutes (once the chips have melted) and, with a fork, spread the melted chocolate over the bar, in order to combine the chips to cover layer 2 and make a design. The aesthetics are up to you.
Put back in the oven for another 15 or 20 minutes until the bar is mostly cooked.
Here’s the hard part: now you have to wait for the cookies to cool before you devour them.
You can spice these bars up with any candy/chocolate you want, so go be that kid in the candy store. Make a graveyard, try gummy worms!
