Easy Dessert

I found this recipe on Blonde Ambition in the Kitchen last Thursday. It sounded so good I knew I had to make it as soon as I got home from work. These were a huge hit with my husband, coworkers, and family. I'll definitely be making them again soon.

Raggedy Top Bars
From Blonde Ambition in the Kitchen



Ingredients

Raggedy Top Bars
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup butter (very soft)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

*Raggedy Topping I doubled this as suggested
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 cup chocolate chips
2 TBS butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup shredded coconut

Directions

Preheat oven to 325. Grease a foil lined 9x13 pan.

In a mixing bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla. Slowly mix in the flour, baking powder and salt just until combined. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 27-35 minutes or until golden on top. Remove bars from oven.

With 5 mins baking time left for bars, prepare topping: In a pan over low heat, stir together the syrup, chips, butter and vanilla until chips are melted. Remove from heat and stir in coconut and nuts.

Place dollops of Raggedy Topping evenly over bars using a greased spoon (do not spread).
Return bars to oven for 2 minutes or until topping is spreadable. Remove from oven and with a buttered knife gently spread topping over bars. If desired sprinkle more coconut and nuts over top of bars. Return to oven and bake for 6-7 minutes more.
