The summer before my Senior year of High school, my sister and I traveled to new York City for a week with our MYF (Mennonite Youth Fellowship… aka Youth Group). We spent the week working with various organizations, eating the most delicious ethnic foods, and walking… and then some more walking. By the second day I had blisters covering the bottom of my foot and ended up limping across the city for the rest of the week… but that isn’t really relevant to this story. On one occasion we were eating at the most amazing Indian restaurant I’ve ever eaten at (seriously, they had the best Saag Paneer I’ve ever had) when Lydia started talking about how she was really craving a Kickass bar. Obviously, we had no idea what she was talking about until she realized what she had said and corrected herself by amending her desired candy to a KitKat bar. But, so entertained with her idea of the Kickass bar, she and I took it upon ourselves to invent a truly Kick-Ass bar. She tried her own version… here is mine. And may I just say, it is pretty Kick-Ass.
1/2 c. Shortening
1/2 c. Butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
Sift the following together before adding
2 3/4 c. flour
2 tsp. Cream of Tartar
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. salt
Split into 2 halves and spread each half onto a cookie sheet covering the majority of the sheet.
Bake @ 400 F for ~ 8-10 minutes until it is beginning to turn golden brown on the edges.
While the crust is cooling, melt White Chocolate Chips (12 oz./ cookie sheet)
When melted spread evenly over Crust
Then spread Nutella (~8 oz./ cookie sheet) over the white chocolate
Let sit in the fridge until served. Cut into bars and ENJOY!!!
Love, Mandi Jo
