This is one of our favorite sweet treats! I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t like them. They’re very easy to make. In fact, Zay, who’s only 13, made these for several of his dad’s co-workers last year. He doubled the recipe and sold them for $18 a pan and earned enough money to buy Christmas presents for our immediate family, his big brother’s girlfriends, his grandparents and his great-grandma!


1/2 cup  butter, melted

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup pecan pieces, optional (we’ve never used them)


Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease baking dish (approx. 7 x 11 unless, of course, you’re doubling then use 9 x 13). In a large bowl, mix together butter and brown sugar, set aside. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Add egg and vanilla to brown sugar mixture; mix well. Add flour to brown sugar mixture; stir well. Stir in chips and nuts. our batter into prepared pan. Bake for at least 20 minutes (it’ll definitely take longer if you double the recipe). Check for doneness. Cool completely before cutting and serving. (Hahaha…Our family has never let them cool completely before serving! We may or may not have suffered a burnt lip or two as result of not following the directions.)

      Wowsers!Can’t believe I left the flour out of the ingredients! I’m all about improvising, but no flour is a stretch for even me. Just fixed the recipe; it’s 1 cup of flour. Thanks!
