Homemade Heath Bars


Happy Independence Day!


Before all of the festivities begin I thought I'd share another recipe. Just in case you need one for today! ;)

My main goal in sharing recipes {besides wanting to pass on the yummyness!} is to help preserve the food legacy of our family for future generations and just in case I lose a recipe. {not that that's ever happened!}

So today I am sharing a recipe from my husband's grandma. 

Homemade heath bars.


Oh my! They are really so good! As in I probably ate half the pan in two days. {You kind of have to pace yourself because they are pretty rich.}

These are easy to make and take only a few ingredients.
{sorry about the crazy photo quality of the next few}

This is all you need:


For the bottom part:

Cream 1 cup of butter {softened to room temp}
1 cup of brown sugar 
1 egg yolk

Once that is mixed well add:
1 cup of flour 1/3 at a time until well mixed




Press into a 9x13 ungreased pan and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.




Right when it comes out of the oven, open 6 Hershey bars and lay them on top of the pan. Once they are completely melted spread them evenly across the top.




And then comes the tricky part. Cutting them. 

I like to refrigerate them for 10 or so minutes and then do an initial cut while things are slightly firm but not hard. Cut all of your pieces. Put it in the fridge. 10-20 minutes later do it again. 

This will save a ton of frustration because both layers become really hard and chewy which make it super hard to cut if you don't do it as it cools.

But oh, its oh so worth it!




They won't last long!

Thanks for stopping by!
