  • Summary

    Think of these delightfully dense bar cookies as a variation on Italian panforte, albeit one with a playfully dark side. They include chocolate, molasses, dates, walnuts, and, to cap it all off, a brush on both sides with port. Just one tiny square delivers big flavor.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
    • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup lightly packed light-brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup unsulfured molasses
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
    • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1/4 cup best-quality candied orange peel, finely chopped
    • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates, cut into 1/4-inch dice
    • 1 cup toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped
    • 1/4 cup port
