Does this look like heaven or what?
with a name like "Just 45 minutes to Heaven" I had to try them...
I decided I can't make these very often because I want to eat 'em all!
They are like a brownie,chewy and delish!
You can warm them up and put a scoop of your favorite ice cream on it
drizzle some chocolate syrup and caramel on top...
mmmm...I'm making myself hungry!
(good thing the rest are in a cute little package to take to our new neighbors that moved in)
I found the recipe at:King Author Flour. They have the recipe and more delicious pictures
step... by.... step!
I shortened their version a little because they tell the ingredients as they show the pictures. I tried to copy and paste and for some reason it wouldn't let me get the recipe any smaller.
Just 45 minutes to heaven… Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Source:kingauthorflour.comRecipe: Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9” x 13” pan
2/3 C. Butter
2 C. Packed Brown Sugar + 2 Tbsp.
Melt 2/3 cup (10 2/3 tablespoons) butter, and stir in 1 pound brown sugar; that’s 2 firmly packed cups + 2 tablespoons, if you want to use a measuring cup rather than simply use a 1-pound box of brown sugar.
Add 3/4 teaspoon salt (1 teaspoon, if you’ve used unsalted butter), and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Stir until smooth.
Add 3 large eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing bowl midway through this process
Add 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder.
Add 2 3/4 cups (11 1/2 ounces)
Stir until well combined.
Next up: chips and/or nuts of your choice.
Also, a 16-ounce bag of chocolate chips is 2 2/3 cups – close enough.
Stir until the chips are thoroughly dispersed throughout the batter.
Scoop the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it to the edges with a wet spatula (or your wet fingers). Smooth the top as best you can.
Bake the bars for 30 to 32 minutes…
…until they’ve risen, and their top is shiny and golden.
A cake tester inserted into the center won’t come out clean; in fact, the center of the very middle of the pan may look quite molten when you dig into it. But so long as no wet batter is showing farther out towards the edges, the bars are done. As they cool, the center will solidify.
Remove the bars from the oven. If the edges have risen a lot compared to the center, use a flat spatula to tamp them down.
Cool at least 15 minutes before cutting.
These bars are very moist indeed just after you’ve removed them from the oven. You might think they’re underbaked; that would be true, if you were going to eat them right away. But letting them cool completely (overnight is best) leaves them with wonderfully chewy, moist texture; if you baked them completely through initially, their final texture would be much drier.
Store completely cooled bars, well wrapped, at room temperature. To regain that delicious just-baked, melty chocolate freshness, reheat individual bars in the microwave very briefly, just until warm.
Want to make old-fashioned “
bars?” Use a mixture of your favorite flavored chips: chocolate, white chocolate, cinnamon, cappuccino, butterscotch, etc.; plus chopped walnuts or pecans. congo
So there you have a great big recipe so you can go make these and let me know if you can't make them very often either!
