Three Layer Party Bars


Cookie Layer - the bottom layer

  • 2 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Butter
  • 2 Eggs yolks
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla
  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt

Chocolate Layer - the middle layer

  • 1 Cup chocolate chips semi sweet or milk chocolate chips (whatever you prefer)

Meringue Layer - the top layer

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 Egg whites


Bottom Layer:

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together, mixing well. Blend in 2 unbeaten egg yolks, vanilla and salt. Mix well. Add the flour, blending thoroughly. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 (or I used a square 8x8). Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden brown.

Middle Layer:

  1. Take out of the oven and sprinkle immediately with chocolate chips. Gently cover the glass baking dish with a clean hand towel and let stand 5 minutes. The chocolate chips will melt and you can now easily spread them over the bottom layer.

Top Layer:

  1. Beat the 2 egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add 2/3 C. sugar, beating well after each addition.
  2. Spread the meringue over the chocolate layer.
  3. Bake again at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes until the meringue is lightly browned.
  4. Allow to cool and cut into squares.
