Looking for a delectable treat to make for all those holiday parties? Look no further than these amazing Mud Hen Bars!
Mud Hen Bars (chocolatey, cookie, gooey, marshmallow comfort)
· 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
· 1 cup granulated sugar
· 3 large eggs, divided (1 egg, 2 yolks, and 2 egg whites)
· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I added this)
· 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
· 1 teaspoon baking powder
· 1/4 teaspoon salt
· 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
· 1 cup mini marshmallows
· 1 cup chopped nuts (I left these out)
· 1 cup light brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 pan. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in 1 whole egg and 2 egg yolks (put aside the whites for later.) Add the vanilla extract.
In a another bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and blend until just combined. Spread mixture into greased pan. Sprinkle with marshmallows, chocolate chips, and nuts.
To make meringue beat eat egg whites until stiff peaks form and then gently fold in the brown sugar. Spread mixture evenly over marshmallows and chocolate chips. Bake for about 30 minutes or until bars are a golden brown. Let bars cool completely. Cut into squares and serve.
