Mississippi Mud Bars

Mississippi Mud Bars

  • Servings: a 9 X 9 Square Pan full
  • Print

1/2 cup Butter, softened (and yep, the recipe claims you can use margarine)… but, I used butter

3/4 cup Brown Sugar, packed

1 Teaspoon Vanilla

1 Egg

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

1 cup + 2 Tablespoons all purpose Flour

1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips, divided (3/4 cup and 1/4 cup)

1 Cup White Chocolate Chips, divided (3/4 cup and 1/4 cup)

1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (Now this is always a sticking point for my family.  I have a couple peeps who just do NOT liked baked nuts. Period.  Me, on the other hand, like them…  So, when I make this recipe, I omit the nuts  *sighs*   Hmmm maybe I should make a double batch next time one without nuts  and  then my pan with nuts. )

HOW TO:

I lined a 9X9 square pan with parchment paper.  I suppose you can use tin foil… or even just butter the sides and bottom of the square pan.

oven at 375°

Cream butter and brown sugar till smooth.  blend in all the other ingredients EXCEPT the chocolate chips.  When blended, fold in the 3/4 cups of both white and semisweet chips.

Bake for 23 – 25 minutes.  Remove and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cups of both white and semisweet chips over the bars.  Put back in the oven for maybe a minute or two till the chips get melted a bit.

Remove and lightly swirl the melted chips over the top.  It don’t have to be perfect!!

Cool in the pan until the chocolate is set.
