2 cups semi-sweet baking melts or chunks (or chocolate chips)
½ cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350°F
Line a 9 x 13 pan with aluminum foil and coat liberally with nonstick spray.
In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment beat the butter and both sugars for 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, vanilla, salt and baking powder and mix for an additional minute on medium, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour, mixing until just combined.
Finally add in the baking melts or chunks and the milk chocolate chips.
Spread the dough into the prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes or until the edges are set and lightly golden and the center appears slightly under baked.
Remove the pan from the oven and allow the bars to cool completely before cutting.
Alternately you can chill the bars before cutting.
Connie, Vickie, Helen and Sandy - weary of always swapping recipes for Thanksgiving, Christmas and entertaining -- we decided to post them here. They are mostly southern, as we are -- proudly hailing from Kingsport, Tennessee, Dobyns-Bennett High School, and Trevecca Nazarene College.
Butter, mayo, and southern accents are key ingredients. Hope you enjoy - we certainly have!
