My Twitter friend Transatlantic Blonde told me about this recipe for these delicious bars. She suggested them for a bake sale, but honestly they didn't make it that far as we claimed too many of them here at home. The crust is like a chocolate chip cookie, nothing unsual, but the part that makes it soooo delicious is the cripsy brown sugar and marshmallow crust that bubbles up as it bakes. Goodness, the mix of the two flavors is too good to pass up!
Mud Hen Bars
1/2 c. butter, room temp
1 c. granulated sugar
1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 c. nuts chopped
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. marshmallows
1 c. brown sugar
Beat together sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in 1 whole egg and 2 egg yolks (put aside the whites for later). IN a seperate bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder. Add to the butter mixture and mix well. Spread into 9x13" pan. Sprinkle with marshmallows, nuts and chocolate chips.
Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold in the brown sugar. Spread over the mixture in pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until bars are a deep golden brown and the crust is cooked through. Cool in pan and cut.
** I excluded the nuts so Henry could enjoy some also!
