Day 12 Of Rosie's Christmas Baking - Ghirardelli Mississippi Mud Bars.

It is Saturday. Still. Day 12. My second and last offering of the day is ... Ghirardelli Mississippi Mud Bars.
Mississippi Mud Bars 1/2 cup butter, softened 3/4 cup brown sugar, fimly packed 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 large egg 1 cup flour 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt 1 bar (4 oz.) Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar, chopped and divided in 1/2 1 bar (4 oz.) Ghirardelli White Chocolate Bar, chopped and divided in half 1 cup walnuts, chopped and divided in half Rosie Note: Instead of Semi-Sweet, I used Bitter-Sweet, since that's what I had. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugar until light. Add egg and vanilla, beating at medium speed until fluffy. Mix in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in 1/2 of the semi/bitter-sweet and white chocolates and 1/2 cup of the walnuts. Spread in greased, foil-lined 9-inch baking pan. Bake 12-15 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Sprinkle remaining chocolates over top. Cover with foil. Let stand 5 minutes. Swirl chocolates. Sprinkle with remaining walnuts. Cool in pan. Cut into bars.
