Candy Bar Brownie Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Candy Bars or chocolate bars?

These are the terms that divide us, my friends. North from South, Canadian from American, friend from foe.

Do you say candy bars or chocolate bars?

Here in Western Canada, it’s most certainly chocolate bars,  but as for the folks out in Eastern Canada, I cannot vouch for them. Any Easterner’s want to chime in on this debate?

In the States- at least the parts I have traveled to-  it’s almost always candy bars. If I happen to say the word “chocolate bar” I’m usually given a suspicious look.

If I spout the sentence “Can you please tell me where your chocolate bars are, eh?” I’ve completely given myself away. Three strikes, I’m a confirmed Canadian. (Can you name the three things in that sentence that are a dead Canadian give away?)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

My latest concoction for a skillet cookie brownie uses your choice of chocolate bars to mix into the brownie and was a fabulous dessert while we camped last weekend.

Ain’t nobody come between me and my desserts, not even the Great Outdoors.

I chose Twix, Rolos, Crispy Crunch and M&M’s to throw into this bad boy.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

First, take the tube of cookie dough and press into the bottom of a 12 inch pre-seasoned cast iron skillet.

Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions.

Add in the chopped up chocolate candy bars of your choice.

See what I did there? I made all my readers happy! Chocolate candy bars it is.

Pour the brownie mixture onto the cookie dough and spread out evenly.

Bake in a 350 degree trailer oven or BBQ until the brownie is cooked, making sure to watch keep the cookie bottom away from direct flame underneath it. In the BBQ cook it on one side and have the flames on the other so the bottom of the cookie doesn’t get too dark.Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Let it cool until you can touch the cast iron skillet – a good 20 minutes outside – and then slice, top with ice cream and serve.

Guess what kind of ice cream I topped it with.

Hint: My favorite chocolate bar. Let’s see which of you remembers!

Enjoy the recipe everyone! It’s a fabulous concoction and I’m so glad I whipped it up this summer for camping!

Speaking of which, oh my word, are we ever running out of summer! I always have these great plans to do everything and go everywhere…and then the summer just gets away from me somehow.

I can’t complain, I’ve written a ton of recipes, we have been at the lake every weekend since June, I’ve canned food and I got in a visit to Calgary this past week to visit all my old friends back there.

I’ve never been so glad that I didn’t get around to letting the kids make their summer lists of what they want to do. That’s a stupid Pinterest idea if I have ever seen one. Talk about adding stress to your summer!

I would have been a complete Fail Mom as we haven’t done any of the usual activities, such as the museum or science centres that I am sure the kids would have put on their lists.

It’s been the Summer of Low Expectations. I love it that way.

Did you get everything checked off your summer list?

Love,

Karlynn
