Outrageous Chocolate Cookies or Bars

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by mizzlizzita

These delicious bars are a family recipe. They are a great combination of chocolate and peanut butter - and the best part is, they use ingredients you usually have on hand. Whenever we take them to parties, they vanish in a flash. To make cookies, drop the dough 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes at same temperature.

Eliza, these are dangerously delicious!! I made as is (making bar cookie), but used regular old fashioned oats since that's what I had on hand. They worked fine. These make a very thick bar cookie, so you can use a slightly larger pan if you would prefer them a little more fluffy. I did also sub light margarine which I usually do as well. These are fantastic and will be made again!! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag Game.
