COOK TIME

This cookie bar recipe is a real "treasure." Just when you thought a chocolate chip cookie bar couldn't get any better, our Chocolate Ruby Treasures surprise you with every scrumptious bite. Plus, the ruby red cherries make 'em look beautiful, too!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) maraschino cherries, drained and coarsely chopped
What To Do:


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degree F.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking soda; mix well and set aside. In a large bowl, with an electric beater on high speed, beat together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, and butter until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla and continue beating until blended, then add the milk and blend well. Gradually add the flour mixture and beat until well mixed. With a spoon, stir in the remaining ingredients.

  3. Pour into a 9" x 13" baking dish that has been coated with nonstick baking spray. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the top is light golden and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before cutting into bars.

    Makes 12 to 15 squares.

Instead of m. cherries, could I use candied cherries/pineapple that some people use for fruit cake or stollen?

Could I use candied cherries/pineapple instead of the M. cherries?

I would not use candied fruit in this recipe.. the bars would be too sweet along with the sugars and chocolate chips The maraschino cherries ....make sure they are well drained before adding, make these bars look so pretty plus delicious I use half Splenda and half sugar for most of my sweet recipes anyway with excellent results

If you aren't a fan of maraschino cherries, you can substitute candied cherries or pineapple. This will give a sweeter taste to the bars.

I sure would like nutritional information posted on these recipes.
