What You'll Need
- 2/3 cup vegetable shortening
- 2 cups light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons hot water
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a small microwaveable bowl, melt shortening; let cool slightly.
- Transfer cooled shortening to a large bowl; add light brown sugar, hot water, eggs, and vanilla; blend well. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat until thoroughly mixed.
- In a small bowl, combine nuts and chocolate chips; reserve 1/2 cup of mixture and set aside. Stir the rest into batter, mixing evenly.
- Spread batter evenly in baking dish. Sprinkle top with the reserved chocolate chip mixture.
- Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- If you prefer, you can melt the shortening in a small saucepan on the stovetop, instead of in the microwave.
- You can substitute either butterscotch or peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips.
- Serve these with a nice cold glass of our Secret Ingredient Iced Tea!
