Congo Bars

3/4 c. shortening, melted
2 1/4 c. brown sugar
3 eggs
2 1/2 t. baking powder
2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
1 c. chocolate chips, I added 2 cups
1/2 c. chopped walnuts, optional

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam.

Melt shortening. Add brown sugar and mix well.

Add eggs, one at a time and beat well after each addition.

Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well.

Add chocolate chips and nuts.

Spread into a greased 9x13 pan.

Bake in a 350ยบ oven for 25-30 minutes.

Cool completely. Cut into squares and serve.

Dana’s Notes: These would also be great with raisins, instead of chocolate chips. You could also add 1-2T rum or bourbon.
