Congo Bars

Happy Twos Day!
2.2.22 on an actual Tuesday!😊

Our Memaw used to make these yummy, gooey, and chocolaty bars for our Mom and we were all more than happy that she carried on with the sweet tradition. They were a staple in our house growing up. With these and so many other delicious treats and freshly baked sweets, we didn't realize how spoiled we really were! Lots of time and love went into everything she ever made or did for each one of us. We had the best Mom!💗

Yikes! I forgot the vanilla! 
For everything else: brown sugar, flour, butter, eggs, baking powder, salt, chocolate chips, and nuts.

After melting the butter, stir in brown sugar and set aside to cool. Add vanilla. Beat in eggs one at a time to mix well. Stir in flour. Stir in nuts and chocolate. So easy!

Pour dough mixture into 13x9 pan prepared with parchment paper and non-stick spray.

Bake in 350 F oven for 30 minutes. Edges should be lightly browned. Let cool and cut.
