White Chocolate Bars

White Chocolate is truly divine!

White Chocolate Bars

2 cups white chocolate chips, divided
1/4 cup (1/2  stick) butter
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1 egg
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup pecans (optional)
Powdered sugar

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 13*9-inch baking pan.  In large saucepan over low heat, melt  cup chips and butter.  Stir in sweetened condensed milk, egg and vanilla.  Stir in flour and baking powder until blended.  Stir in pecans (if so desired - I just placed them on top of the squares) and remaining chips.  Spoon mixture into prepared pan.

2.  Bake 20-25 minutes.  Cool.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar: cut into squares.  Store covered at room temperature.
