  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
  • 4 Heath candy bars (1.4 ounces each), coarsely chopped


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat the butter, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined (batter will be thick).
  2. Spread into a 13x9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with chocolate chunks and chopped candy bars; press gently into batter.
  3. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20-25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
