Yesterday, I baked. And by baked, I mean I pulled out an easy recipe that my mom used to make for us all the time, and for about 15 minutes…I baked. :)
We’ve always called these mud bars. This is one of those desserts that is hard to make “Pinterest Pretty” but it doesn’t really matter because they are so delish. Also, they are made in a 9×9 inch pan so they hardly last for 10 seconds in our house! I snapped a picture before Reagan got home…
Mmm, see that ooey gooey chocolate butterscotch goodness! I think the butterscotch is really what makes them so good.
What you don’t see in the above picture is the little hand that came up and tried to snatch this bar! The little hand that then smushed her mud bar into my blue settee (yes, fancy pants). The little hand that opened up my silver polishing cream and squirted it all over the dining room as I was cleaning up the smushed cookie bar. The little hand that led mama to eat one too many of these last night!
Here is the how to on these easy cookie bars!
- 3/4 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 Egg
- 1 Cup & 2Tb flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
- 1/2 Cup Butterscotch Chips
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside. In another bowl, beat the sugar, butter and vanilla extract until creamy. Add the egg and beat well. Next, gradually add in the flour mixture. Stir in the butterscotch and chocolate chips and spread into a foil-lined 9 inch square baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 23-25 minutes.
