Latte Bars

3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup instant coffee crystals
1/4 cup milk or heavy cream
1 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

At home: preheat oven to 325. Lightly grease a 13 by 9 inch pan. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the sugar, vanilla and butter, beating to combine. Stir in the flour and salt. Set aside 1 � cups of batter. Stir the coffee crystals and cream and add to the remaining batter. Spread the coffee batter into the prepared pan. Add chocolate chips to the reserved batter and spoon over the coffee batter. Run a knife through the two batters to marble them. Sprinkle the pecans over the top. Bake 20-25 minutes or until the center is firm and set. Cool before cutting into bars. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap.

In camp: unwrap and enjoy! Makes about 2 dozen.

Note: These firm up as they cool. They are not like a granola bar. More like a dense coffee cake or brownie.

    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I left out the nuts & they were still an enormous hit, a great pick-me-up in the afternoon!! I can not wait to try the Chai in place of the coffee. I had enough, that I took some to our local scout shop and the ladies in the shop and the scout office loved them. They were quick & easy to make.

    I used the recipe pretty much to note, but added in a bunch of toasted oats and toasted rye flakes and they were delicious!
