This has become my go-to dessert for bake sales and pot lucks. I get compliments on it every time (and requests to make it again) I don't add nuts; still is wonderful. Thank you so much for posting!

These are so good and rich! I used about 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts and they cooked up in 37 minutes. So much easier than making cookies! Made for I Recommend Tag.

These were a snap to make and great tasting!! It was surprising that there was no white sugar in the recipe and I re-read it several times just to make sure. I didn't add nuts because of family preference and ended up adding additional chocolate chips; next time I won't do that (or not use quite so many extra) because there was almost no cookie -- just chocolate goo!! All in all a great recipe -- rating 4 1/2!!

They were good, but seemed to be missing something. Maybe not enough vanilla? I don't know. Not very flavorful.

Excellent bars! These completely fit my wednesday group baking requirements - simple enough to make before work in the morning, and a crowd pleaser on top of it! I'll definately keep this recipe handy. I didn't use nuts today but to compensate, added 1/2 cup of toffee chips, which were a good choice! They baked up in 35 minutes. Thanks so much for posting this recipe, Studentchef! They were thoroughly enjoyed! Made for Sweet Traditions Tag.

These were AWESOME!!!!!! They've replaced my regular blonde brownie! I read an article at: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/09/dining/09chip.html about how one should leave the dough in the fridge because it makes for a better cookie! Using the chilling method and this recipe, it was pure heaven!!!!! Thanks!!!

I have made these twice in the last two weeks. They are so good! I didn't have Ghirardelli chips and used dark chocolate Kissables the first time and Hershey's Special Dark chips the second. I didn't use nuts because of allergies but if I had used walnuts I would have eaten the whole pan myself. Mine took 40 minutes but who cares. That way they weren't cool enough to eat until after the kids were in bed. I will be making this many, many more times. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Delish! I love almonds, so I changed the nuts to almonds (and used almond extract instead of the vanilla). They came out great.
