Snickers Cookie Bars

Last Halloween I saw a recipe in Woman's Day magazine for Snickers blondies. I finally got around to making my own twist. These bars are chewy and have plenty of gooey goodness from the Snickers. Plus they're easy and fast to make! You can substitute Milky Way, but the peanuts add a nice crunch. Be sure to let them cool completely before slicing.
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
10 fun-sized Snickers (about 1 1/2 cups), chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Cream together margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg. Gradually add in the flour mixture.  
Pour the dough into a 8x8 baking pan sprayed with cooking spray. Push the dough into all corners. Put the Snickers candies on top and push into the dough.
Bake for 25 minutes. Cool completely before slicing. 
Yields 16 bars.
