Congo Bars
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup butter, softened
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 2¼ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 bag chocolate chips (12 oz.)
  1. In a large bowl, cream the sugar and butter. Add in the eggs and stir until combined.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Pour the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Stir in the bag of chocolate chips.
  3. Lightly grease a 13x9 pan with shortening, then dust it with flour. Press dough into the pan using a spatula.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 325 degrees. Test the center with a toothpick. The dough should still be soft in the center. Allow the bars to cool before serving.
