Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup butter, unsalted
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 bags chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions
 

  • Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl, then let it sit and cool for a few minutes.  With a paper towel or pastry brush, spread some of the butter in a 9x13 pan, covering the bottom and sides. 
  • Add the brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla into the melted butter and mix well.
  • Measure the flour (spoon the flour into your measuring cup, then level it with a knife) and mix it with the baking soda.  Add the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Mix well.
  • Pour in the chocolate chips and stir to combine. Spread the batter as evenly as you can in the 9x13 pan.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until the edges are browned, and the middle is set--around 35 to 40 minutes in my oven. 
  • Let cool for about an hour before cutting into squares.

Notes

Love chocolate and peanut butter?  Use 1 bag of chocolate chips and 1 bag of peanut butter chips, or leave out both bags and cover the top with mini Reese's PB Cups--pushing them into the batter.
