Okay, I just made these and let me just say I am now in chocolate chip cookie heaven! I subbed whole wheat flour for 1/3 of the flour and used a little less sugar (not sure how much less though) since I don't like my desserts too sweet :). I reduced the serving size in half and found that it cooked perfectly in a little under 20 minutes. This is seriously one of the best desserts I have made. They are nice and soft and chewy and full of gooey chocolate goodness! I've already eaten most of the pan, lol! I'm not sure how long these are going to last... This is a must make recipe for cookie lovers everywhere!
i always come back to this recipe--it's simple, quick, delicious & always a hit...
Great, super chewy cookie bars!
