Dream Bars

25 November 2012

My sister's Grade 2 teacher gave my mom this recipe - I made these tonight for the first time in years and I had forgotten how very decadent these little bars are. 


120g Butter
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons Cocoa
1 tspn vanilla extract
120g Flour
1 tspn baking powder
1/2 cup rolled oats, coconut, bran or a mixutre of these (I used oats and coconut)


Melt the butter, remove from stove and add sugar and beaten egg.  Mix well.
In a bowl, mix together dry ingredents and then blend in the butter mixture. 
Add vanilla.
Spread mixture in a greased tin or baking dish and bake @ 180 deg for approx. 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the topping.
Melt one tablespoon butter in four tablespoons of boiling water. 
Stir in 1 cup of icing sugar along with 2 tablespoons of cocoa (both sieved).
Mix Well.

Spread over baked mixture while hot.
Set aside to cool and enjoy x
