Ingredients

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup HERSHEY'S MINI KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates
  • MILK CHOCOLATE GLAZE (recipe follows, optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange peel
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

Directions

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch square baking pan.

2. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and egg in large bowl until fluffy. Add orange peel and vanilla; beat until blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture. Stir in apricots, walnuts and chocolates; spread in prepared pan.

3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned and bars begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Prepare MILK CHOCOLATE GLAZE, if desired; drizzle over top. Allow to set; cut into bars. About 16 bars.
