    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Note: I have tried both the 6 oz and the 12 oz size bags before--Both work; The 6 oz works perfectly, but when I am BINGING for chocolate I have used the 12 oz size bag instead; (hehe) The 12 oz size makes them VERY chocolately, though, and are just a bit harder to cut due to all that ooey, gooey chocolate!
    2. 2
      Either way, you can't go wrong!
    3. 3
      Cream shortening and sugar, add eggs, beat.
    4. 4
      Add dry ingredients alternately with applesauce.
    5. 5
      (I add half of the flour with the rest of the dry ingredients, then half of the applesauce, then the rest of the flour, then the rest of the applesauce).
    6. 6
      Fold in chips, raisins and pecans.
    7. 7
      Bake in greased 13x9 baking pan or glass dish for 40 minutes at 350°, cool completely, sift powdered sugar over top, cut into bars.

      Very very yummy!! I ended up using 8 oz chocolate chips. I also only had to bake for 35 minutes and they were perfectly done. Thanks so much for the recipe Kelly!

      Very good and not too sweet! For the applesauce, I just peeled an apple and whipped it up with a little water in my food processor. Thank you, Kelly! Reviewed for ZWT4.
