Taste of Home Cookies cookbook
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg yolk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup canola oil
1 package (11-1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips, melted
3/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Press onto the bottom of a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the filling ingredients. Spread over hot crust. ***Let sit for a few minutes before spreading so as not to tear up bottom layer. Bake for 15 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes.
Spread melted chocolate over filling; sprinkle with walnuts. Cool completely. Cut into bars. Yield: 4 dozen.
