Cub Scout Congo Bars

When I was a Cub Scout Den Mother in the early 1980's we had to provide refreshments for our little Scouts along with prepare all of the activities and come up with games to keep the little fellows occupied. One of the favorite treats were Congo Bars. Donna Patterson first prepared them for the group and we served them with little half pint milk cartons. Donna had four little boys and always had great recipes and ideas. Here is her recipe:

Congo Bars

2/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 box light brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts
12 ounces milk chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine butter and brown sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Sift dry ingredients and add to the sugar mixture. Stir until well mixed. Add nuts and chocolate chips. Pour into greased 15 X 10 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. (don't overbake)
