Mounds Bar Brownies

Cooking with kids doesn’t have to only involve desserts but they definitely get more excited when it does! And I figure that anything that gets them used to being in the kitchen is fine with me. Parents need to do the melting here but kids can do the mixing. I bought a box of Mounds bars for a family vacation and came home with way too many. It was either cook with them or eat them all myself…

Mounds Bar Brownies
2 Mounds candy bars (this doesn’t come close to using up what I have but it’s a start!)
½ cup shortening
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt together candy bars and shortening (I use a microwave; you can also use a low heat on the stove top). Remove from heat and stir in all remaining ingredients. Pour into a greased 9-inch square pan. Bake for 25 minutes. Cut into bars while still warm. Don’t blame me if you eat too many…
