    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). In large bowl, beat crust ingredients with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly. Using a piece of plastic wrap on crust mixture, press in ungreased 13x9-inch pan; remove plastic wrap.

    Bake 22 to 26 minutes or until set. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining 3/4 cup chocolate chips and the shortening uncovered on High 30 to 45 seconds, stirring once, until softened and chips can be stirred smooth. Spoon into resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut tiny tip from 1 bottom corner of bag; drizzle chocolate over bars. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until chocolate is firm. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 6 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Use an egg separator to separate the egg white from the yolk. A separator consists of a small bowl-shaped centre that holds the yolk with a surrounding space that allows the white to slip through into a bowl.
  • Tip 2
    In most grocery stores, you'll find instant espresso coffee powder in the same aisle as the instant coffee.
