Cappuccino Crunch Bars

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Muffin Goddess

These are something a little different for a non-specific sweet craving. I made a couple of minor alterations, but the original recipe was Edwina Gadsby's submission to Home-Tested Cookie Recipes. I found that they are better a day or two after you make them.

Wow! The orange zest really makes these lovely cookie bars! Absolutely beautiful flavor and I underbaked them a bit so they would stay chewy and gooey. I cut the recipe in half and used 1/4 c white and 1/4 c milk chocolate chips. These are going in the keeper file!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease a 13x9-inch pan (I recommend cooking spray- if you use shortening, the bars may seem greasy once cooled).
  3. Stir together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl; set aside.
  4. With an electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars until fluffy.
  5. Beat eggs in one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  6. Mix in dissolved and cooled coffee, extracts and orange zest.
  7. Gradually mix in flour mixture.
  8. Once flour is blended in, stir in chips and toffee bits.
  9. Transfer batter to prepared pan and spread evenly.
  10. Bake 25-35 minutes, or until golden brown.
  11. Cool in pan on wire rack before cutting into bars.
