Browned Butter Walnut Chocolate Chunk Bars


To be honest, I've never had nor made cookie bars before. I've made brownies a million times (my latest creation is just phenomenal) and blondies a couple of times but never cookie bars. I know these are supposed to be like cookies but in a bar form (I am quite clever today!) but actually I found these to resemble to blondies.
BUT I stuffed them with toasted walnuts and a handful of white chocolate (maybe that's why the blondie resemblance) and to make it to the next level I used browned butter!
Seriously, what is better than using the sweet, nutty flavoured butter that will make everything taste as if you are having caramel!
There is only one con of this recipe: totally unfit for a clean eating diet. It is extremely sinful! But when else would you give in than around Halloween?? So toss the candy aside and go make some cookie bars! ;)

oh and ps: the reason the bars look so dark inside is due to my silliness. I completely forgot to add the eggs even though the dough was totally crumbly I just didn't get it. So I totally put that crumble mess in the oven just to get to my head, oh my the eggs! So i immediately got it out and stirred the eggs in. I know, I know you should never put eggs in warm dough but it wasn't that warm at all, only the chocolate melted a little bit inside so as I stirred, the half melted chocolate stirred as well thus the brownish color. Don't repeat this after me ;)

Browned Butter Walnut Chocolate Chunk Bars
use a 9X13 inch pan

200 grams (14 Tbsp) butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate, cut into chunks
3/4 cup white chocolate, cut into chunks
1 cup toasted walnuts, cut into pieces

Preheat oven to 160C or 325F.
Grease your pan.
Using a small saucepan, start melting your butter over low heat. After the butter is all melted it will form a white foam but just keep on cooking it. After about 5-8 minutes the foam will subside and your butter will have golden brown specks at the bottom. The smell will also become nutty, that's when you know it's ready. You should be careful at this point because once you get the specks it's easy to overcook the butter and it will be burnt instead of browned. Set it aside to cool.

Mix together in a medium bowl the flour, salt and baking soda.

Once the browned butter is room temp, add the sugars to it and mix. Add in the vanilla and the eggs (one at a time). Combine the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix it together. Fold in the chocolates and the walnuts.

Place the dough into the pan. Use your fingers to make it even in the pan and bake it for about 20-24 minutes.

  19. Young or old, teen or adult, vegetarian or non-vegetarian, whoever it is, the sight and the taste of burgers will never fail to mesmerize. There are exceptions, yet, burgers are one of the top consumed fast-food, next to pizzas. These burgers are usually called Hamburgers and have a history from the USA which got carried away to the rest of the world in terms of western influence. Do Visit: mybkexperiences

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Coconut-Almond Butter stuffed Chocolate Cups

I wasn't gonna make a dessert today. Let alone something chocolatey. No no no! I wanted to have a dessert-free week. And look, I made chocolate cups! How did this happen??  Anyways... These cups are amazing. Seriously, finger-licking good. Not exaggerating. You need to make this!! I used to go crazy for Reese's but after a while I got so fed up with the excessive sweetness. Yeah, I find Reese's way too sweet and too dense. That's why I fell in love with these cups. These are not overly sweet, yet really rich and the salt on top  takes it to the next level. I am in love. Although I did eat only a half of it. But I'm thinking hard to eat another half :) I might as well just do it. What's the harm? 1 pound on my hips? Oh well! :P
So it all started with me buying a bag of almonds. To make almond butter. Then I wanted something extra so I started making coconut butter first and I kinda added more coconut than almonds... It's like raffaello butter. Utterly deliciou…
