Time for some chocolate chips! I prefer the mini chocolate chips in these bars, but regular or even chocolate chunks work great too.

Crushed candy cane bits up next! Many times you can find bags near the chocolate chips at your grocery store. You can always crush your own candy canes if needed.

*Look for the Candy Cane bits at your grocery store’s baking section. They hold up much nicer than crushing your own candy canes.

    Did not cook through, followed all instructions to a T. Edges browned but middle was like goo. Currently back in the oven for another 10 minutes but the edges are going to burn ☹️
