4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3 1.55-ounce plain chocolate candy bars, coarsely chopped

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Set aside 1/4 cup of this mixture.

Add remaining dry ingredients to egg mixture and blend well. Toss Snickers pieces with reserved 1/4 cup flour mixture, then stir them into batter. Transfer to a greased 13x9x2-inch pan. Sprinkle with plain chocolate candy bar pieces and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Do not over bake. Cool on wire rack; chill before cutting.

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night. Phyllis Diller sent the audience with her offbeat humor. And send them she did! It was Miss Diller's third appearance in the Quad-Cities area.
1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
