Holiday Magic Bars actually pack two different kinds of magic in a single square. First, they practically burst with holiday colors, magically catching the eye with brightness and cheer. Second, they taste magical—deep and rich with brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and bites of chocolate candy for extra sweetness. Holiday Magic Bars add some winter wonderment to your parties and potlucks; by the end of the evening, the tray you brought them on will be magically empty!


Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chocolate-covered candies
1/4 cup holiday sprinkles

Directions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Grease a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.

Step 3

Line the pan with parchment paper, letting the parchment hang slightly over the edges for easier removal of the bars later on.

Step 4

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Step 5

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla on medium speed until creamy and light in color, about 3-5 minutes.

Step 6

Add the flour mixture to the stand mixer and beat until all the ingredients come together, about 1 minute, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Step 7

Fold in the chocolate candies and holiday sprinkles.

Step 8

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until the top just starts to turn golden, for about 30 minutes.

Step 9

Let the dessert cool in the pan for 15 minutes.

Step 10

Remove the dessert by pulling on the parchment paper.

Step 11

Then cut it into bars and serve!
