2/3 cup butter, melted
1, 1 lb. box light brown sugar (2 1/3 cups, packed)
2 ¾ cups flour
2 ½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1, 12 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips
1 cup walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
In a large bowl combine butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs.
Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix thoroughly. Add the chocolate chunks and nuts (if desired).
Prepare a 9” x 13” baking dish with non-stick spray. Spread the batter evenly in the dish and bake for 30-35 minutes until tester just comes out clean.
Let cool completely. Cut into squares, hide 2 for yourself, and let your family devour them!!
This recipe is an old favorite from the church cookbook when I was growing up (still one of my favorite cookbooks). My sister-in-law has become the Congo Queen, making these often for family gatherings!
