Congo Bars


• 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature

• 2 cups brown sugar, packed

• 3 large eggs, at room temperature

• 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

• 1 teaspoon Kosher salt

• 2 teaspoons baking powder

• 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

• 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks

• 1 cup milk chocolate chips


• Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13-inch baking dish with parchment paper and grease with nonstick spray. Set aside.

• In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes.

• Add eggs, vanilla, salt, and baking powder and mix to combine, scraping down the sides of the bowl.

• Reduce mixer to low, then add flour. Mix until just combined.

• Stir in chocolate chunks and chocolate chips.

• Transfer dough to prepared pan and spread out with a rubber spatula. Bake until edges are set, about 30 minutes. Center will seem slightly underbaked and gooey.
