For the bars:

1-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped mixed candied fruit

For the frosting:
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature

Pre-heat oven to 350 F and grease a 9" x 9" baking pan. In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla. In another bowl, sift together flour, spices, baking powder and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Stir in fruit, almonds and chocolate. Pat into the bottom of prepared pan.
