Equipment

  • 9x13-inch Baking Pan

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Hand mixer

Ingredients

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan with non stick cooking spray.

  • Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
  • Add baking powder, salt, and flour and mix it all together.
  • Mix in your chocolate chips then slowly mix in 12 crushed Nutter Butter Cookies.
  • Press into prepared pan (dough is sticky, spray your hands with cooking spray to avoid it sticking to your hands).
  • Sprinkle the 4 crushed nutter butters over the top.
