By Request: Treasure Chest Bars

Well, now this is a first!  After I talked about baking Treasure Chest Bars a few days ago, several people asked for the recipe. 

This is a Schiffer family favorite from Christmases past.  Just remember:  The real Treasures are those dear children, wide-eyed on Christmas morning. 

Merry Christmas, everyone!



½ cup butter
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar

Blend in:

2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat until fluffy.

Combine and add:

2 cups flour
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt

Stir in:

1 cup walnuts, in large pieces
1 cup drained maraschino cherry halves
1 6-oz. package chocolate chips

Bake at 325° 25-30 minutes in two 9X9” pans, greased and floured on bottom.
Frost warm. Cool.

Brown Butter Frosting

Brown ¼ cup butter over medium heat until deep brown.
Blend in 2 cups sifted confectioner’s sugar and ½ tsp. vanilla.
Add 1 or 2 Tbsp. milk; cream until smooth.
(Frosting should not be pour-on, but thinner than you would put on a cake.)
