Hippety, Hop, Hop! Hippety, Hop, Hop….give yourself a peep at these pretty little Hoppin’ Whopper Bars!
These bars are seriously, whoppin’ good. Hubby ate most of them. I thought I would let you know that before you jumped to any conclusions that I ate most of them, which is usually a pretty good conclusion, if you did actually come up with that conclusion…you might know me pretty well. LOL! So many conclusions…who has time? I just want to bake some more of these up.
I love the fact that these bars cut so pretty. That’s usually not an option if someone gets to them before me…I’m OCD like that. Ahhh! These are the perfect sweet treat for Easter time. And if you have Whoppers candy left over from the Easter Bunny, ta-da!! Recipe on demand right here for you!
Here’s the recipe! Hop to it and enjoy these scrumptious bars. Yum!

- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
- Optional: 2 tablespoons malted milk powder
Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Spray a 9"x13" pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt and malted milk powder and whisk together.
Using a mixer,beat butter and sugar on medium until mixed well. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined.
On low speed, gradually add in the flour mixture and mix until incorporated.
Fold in the coarsely chopped Whoppers, Whopper eggs and chocolate chips using a large spoon until the whoppers and chocolate chips are well distributed in the very thick batter.
Transfer batter into the baking pan and press evenly into the pan.

If you want these more gooey, underbake a little by a couple of minutes.
