Maple is a flavor that can go far beyond pancakes, as these nutty, chocolaty, frosted bars prove. They’re made with a shortcut start from Betty Crocker™ chocolate chip cookie mix, and get finished with a scratch maple buttercream that’s well worth a little bit of extra effort. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Toasting nuts adds depth and richness to any baked good. To toast walnuts, heat oven to 350°F. Spread nuts in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
  • The secret for cutting bars easily is to line pan with heavy-duty or nonstick foil. When it is time to cut bars, just lift baked bar with the foil out of pan, and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
