Double Chip Meringue Bars Recipe

This recipe came from my mom. It originally called just for chocolate chips, but the addition of peanut butter chips was a huge success. And the meringue topping makes these bars extra special.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:48 servings


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar


  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolks, water and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture.
  • 2. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with chips and pat lightly. For topping, in a small bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in brown sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, on high until stiff peaks form. Spread evenly over chips.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 4 dozen.
