I needed a nice dessert for my husband to take my in-laws this weekend and this just fit the bill! This is a wonderful chocolatey snack square that should suit almost any occassion. Thanks Mirj!

An old time family favorite. Check this after 20 minutes. You don't want to over-bake it, it'll get too hard. Also, I always use two of those really huge Hershey bars, instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Pre-melt them in the microwave and then spread over top of the bars when you remove them from the oven. I like finely chopped pecans on top of that (1/2 - 3/4 cup).

Agree with Zannah17. I think that the brown sugar made it very hard. I made this exactly as directed and it wasn't what I had expected. Sorry.

This has been a family favorite for years. Simple and delicious, it brings back memories of my grandmother and family holiday gatherings.

I used gluten free baking flour mix instead of the flour. I cut the recipe in half and used a smaller pan. I also mixed it right in the pan and spread it out smoothly. I used toasted walnuts on top. Beautiful and wheat free!

I've made this recipe for several years. It was in a cookbook I got when I was first married (way back in the early 70's). The only difference is that the other recipe used Hershey bars as the chocolate topping not semi-sweet chips.

My grandmother used to make these cookies, and I haven't seen them since. Thank you for this recipe! It doesn't taste exactly how I remember, but she might have used different types of chocolate or nuts. I used a whole 12ox. bag of chocolate chips and the chocolate layer was too thick, so don't make that mistake.

Really good! I made half a batch because I only had 1 stick of butter in the fridge. My sister asked me to come bring her and her friends a treat during their lunch period at her high school after I got home from my college classes for the day. I rushed home and had these completely cooked in under 30 minutes. I melted the butter in the microwave so I could speed things up and I covered the top with the chocolate chips the last 10 minutes they were in the oven and just spread them a little with a spatula when they were done. I had to sneak on my sister's campus to give them to her (no visitors allowed) and I 'd say it was worth it because she and her friends said they loved them!
