Double Chocolate Whopper Bars

These Double Chocolate Whoppers Bars are super yummy and easy! They are nice and chewy. After my family devoured the whole pan, I thought how nice it would have been to have a Chocolate Malted Buttercream Frosting on them, to accent and bring out the Whoppers candy in the bar. Note to self for the next time, because there definitely will be a next time! :)

This recipe could just as easily be made into cookies if you prefer. I've also given a note at the bottom ... just in case you want to make cookies instead!





Double Chocolate Whoppers Bars
Inspired from this Hershey recipe
Printable recipe
Yields: 4 dozen bars

2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup Hershey's cocoa powder
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips
1-1/2 cup coarsely chopped Whoppers candy

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch jelly roll pan. Set aside.

Stir together flour, baking soda and cocoa powder. In a separate bowl, beat butter, both sugars and vanilla extract until creamy. Add both eggs and beat well. Gradually add the flour mixture, beating well. Stir in chocolate chips and Whoppers candy pieces.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely. Cut into bars.

*** To make cookies (about 5 dozen) - Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes in a 375 degree F. oven.  Cool slightly on the baking sheet, then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Of course, if you just can't wait or like 'em straight out of the oven, no one will judge you! ;)

Just a note - these didn't have an overwhelming Whoppers flavor ... just a hint of it. They are yummy, just don't expect a strong Whoppers taste! I'm still thinking that a Chocolate Malted Buttercream Frosting would be fantastic, too!


I hope you enjoy!
