Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Kudos Holly! There are so many flavors in these bars. The cinnamon really shines through in the graham cracker crust. The cranberries give a sweet, tart flavor. And the chocolate on top ties it all together!

Ingredients

COOKIE CRUST

2 1/4 c
flour
1/2 tsp
cream of tartar
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/2 c
powdered sugar
1/2 c
sugar
10
whole graham crackers (we used cinnamon)
1/2 tsp
vanilla
1/2 c
vegetable oil
1 stick
butter
1 large
egg

TOPPINGS

1 can(s)
cranberry sauce
1 c
chocolate chips
1 Tbsp
shortening

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all dry ingredients well for crust, add wet ingredients and mix very well. Press into greased 13x9" pan. Run cranberry sauce through food processor until smooth, pour and level out over cookie crust. Bake in 350* oven for about 20 minutes until crust is done and cranberry sauce is a little bubbly.
2
While it's baking, add chocolate chips and shortening to heavy pot and melt over low-medium heat stirring constantly so not to burn!
3
Pour chocolate over cranberry sauce and cookie crust, cover and let set 4 hours or overnight.
