|My Spicy Choco-Apple Bars recipe is a great way to use and enjoy apples.|
My Spicy Choco-Apple Bars combines a few of my favorite flavors of apples, chocolate and spices in these moist, fruity bars. This recipe is also another easy one that hardly requires much effort except for basic assembling of the ingredients, a bit of mixing, and peeling a few apples. The truth is the hardest part of making my bars will be waiting for them to come out of your oven!
I hope that when you are in the mood to bake and have apples on hand that you will want to print my recipe and give it a try because it is sinfully good.
Something else that you might want to try if you love apples is my recipe for my Applesauce-Molasses Bars.
My Spicy Choco-Apple Bars
½ cup of butter
1 cup of sugar
2 large eggs
1-1/4 cups of flour
1 cup of rolled oats
1 teaspoon of baking powder, leveled
½ teaspoon of baking soda, leveled
½ teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
½ teaspoon of ground cloves
½ teaspoon of nutmeg
1-1/2 cups of peeled, finely diced apples (about four small apples)
Cream the butter with your sugar throughly.
Add your eggs next into that mixing bowl with the sugar-butter mixture and beat again.
In another mixing bowl, sift all the dry ingredients together except the oats.
Stir in the oats along with the moist ingredients to the sifted dry ones until everything is well combined.
Add the finely chopped apples last to the batter and pour into a well-greased 12-3/4″ x 9″ x 2″ baking pan and bake in a 375-degree oven for about 25 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated. Test if done with a toothpick.
Cool slightly before attempting to cut into bars.
