Baking with your kids can be very rewarding. They get to measure and stir, make a bit of a mess, then you all get rewarded with delicious treats. We've put together this easy recipe for Chewy Butter-Crunch Bars that won't just keep the kids busy baking, but snacking as well. 

Prep: 15 min Bake: 30 min Yield: 20 squares Chewy-Butter-Crunch-Bars_1200x800

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Longo’s Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Longo’s Enriched Coop Large Egg, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 1/4 cups coarsely chopped chocolate-covered toffee bars such as Skor minis
  • 1 pkg (100 g) Longo’s Slivered Almonds
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

Beat together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and then vanilla, scraping down bowl.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In separate bowl, combine chocolate-covered toffee bars, almonds and chocolate chips. On low speed, gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, stirring in chocolate and toffee mixture right after.

Scrape into greased and parchment-paper-lined 9-inch square baking pan. Bake in preheated 325°F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden and set. Cool on rack before cutting into squares. 

Tip: You can use whatever chocolate bars you have on hand, and feel free to substitute the chocolate chips with milk chocolate or white chocolate chips.
