 PS…be sure to cast your spell with a little love!
Just in case you don’t have a magic wand to make your own Bewitching Cookie Bars, here’s all you need to do.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla well. Add flour baking soda and baking powder and mix till crumbly. Pat into a 9×13″ pan that has been sprayed with a non-stick spray. Press down till the crust is smooth and uniform. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
While the crust is cooling, mix 1 cup of the chocolate chips with 1/2 of the can of sweetened condensed milk. Over medium-low heat, melt and stir until it’s creamy. Remove from heat, stir in remaining cup of chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, egg, vanilla, and nuts. Stir till creamy and smooth. Spread over cookie crust and return to 350 degree oven. Bake for 22 to 24 minutes until set. Remove from oven and set on a cooling rack. Gently press candy corn into crust, just lightly. Place vanilla chips and oil in a zip-top bag and microwave for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes on half power. Press mixture together, mixing chips and oil together till smooth. Snip the corner of the bag and drizzle over the pan of bars. After it cools, chill to set the swirly vanilla topping. Makes 36 bars.
You’ll cast a magical spell!  Thanks for flying by…

    What does baking do to the candy corn??? Does it make it soft??? These sound delicious

    Please note! After you take the baked bars out of the oven add the candy corn. Bake the bars without the candy…then drizzle the melted vanilla chips on top!

    Thanks everyone…

    One of the things that I like about this is that it’s an absolutely perfect way to make a cookie bar a decidedly FALL one. The other thing is that whole delicious looking thing. We used to tease the husband that he could live on nachos and candy corn because he loves the two of them so much.

    He might think this was the best thing he ever ate. Unless, of course, you come up with a pralines and cream cookie bar. (Consider that an assignment, Miss Campus Queen.)
