WHAT YOU NEED unsalted butter light brown sugar granulated sugar egg vanilla extract all purpose flour baking powder kosher salt chopped candy dark chocolate chips flaky sea salt
1. For the candy that will be going on top of the cookie bars, chop what is needed and place in the freezer. 2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the butter and sugars, followed by the egg and vanilla. 3. When smooth and well combined, fold in the dry ingredients followed by the chopped candies.
4. Spread the batter into the pan and top with an even spread of dark chocolate chips. They will melt and become the glue that holds all the candy on top, so get a good even cover of chocolate. 5. Bake for 25-30 minutes. 6. Pull the candy from the freezer and immediately decorate the bars while the chocolate chips are still melted.
7. Top with a generous pinch of sea salt and refrigerate for about 30 minutes, or until the bottom of the pan is no longer hot. 8. Lift the bars out, slice, and enjoy!
