Chocolate Cranberry Chunky Bar Cookies

Not your typical bar cookie. I took a twist on a chocolate cookie recipe and created this tasty bar cookie.  As I’ve mentioned in the past I try to scale down my desserts to make smaller batches so I used a pie pan for my recipe today.  Cranberries, macadamia nuts and white chips really complimented the chocolate nicely.

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 Tbs cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup macadamia nuts
  • 2 Tbs dried cranberries (I used craisins)
  • 1/4 cup white chips

Cream together sugars and butter; mix in egg and vanilla.  In separate bowl mix flour, cocoa, and baking soda.  Slowly add to creamed mixture.  Stir in nuts, cranberries, and chips.  Press into greased pie pan or baking dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 – 18 minutes or until chips have started to brown and edges start to crack slightly (like a cookie!)

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
