Easy Halloween Cookie Bars
Firstly, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a 9 x 13 baking pan with parchment paper or nonstick foil. Because this is a recipe you want to cut out into bars out of the pan, you will need to line the baking pan for easy removal. (My favorite pans to use for baking are the traditional glass Pyrex bakeware pans. You can get this Pyrex Easy Grab Glass Bakeware and Food Storage Set on Amazon for less than $20 – a great deal!)
Next, make the batter. Melt the butter and stir in the brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt and stir to combine. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips and press mixture into prepared baking pan using spatula or damp hands to spread evenly. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
Cool bars completely. Finally, prepare the topping. Melt the chocolate chips and drizzle over the top of bars. Drizzle on the orange cookie frosting.
If you don’t have orange cookie frosting, you can substitute melted white chocolate chips and orange food coloring. Before it dries, stick on the candy eyes and sprinkles if using.
