1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 cups applesauce
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 15" x 10" x 1" jelly-roll pan using Pan Release.
In a large mixing bowl, cream 1 1/2 cups sugar and butter. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift cocoa, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and flour ingredients and add to sugar mixture, alternately with applesauce. Pour into prepared jelly roll pan.
In a small mixing bowl, combine 2 tablespoon sugar, chocolate chips and nuts. Sprinkle over batter. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted halfway between the edge and center comes out clean. Do not overbake. Center should be set (slightly sticky) but not dry. Cool completely, then cut into bars.
