"I found this recipe in a local church cookbook. If you like a softer cookie bar, then this is the recipe for you! A definite crowd and family pleaser. I frequently give out this recipe. Also a great midnight snack IF there are any left!"
Serving Size: 1 (57 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 16
"I made these 2 days ago and I found them quite tasteless. I followed the directions exactly. When they were done my family and I could taste the chocolate but the bar itself really had no flavor. They were simple to make but not a recipe I would make again."
"Easy because all the ingredients are always in my cupboard - and fast... as they are gone quite fast! They become dry quite fast so better to enjoy them fast! :)"
"These were very good. I was worried about them not fitting into a 9x13 so I made in my two 8" cake pans. They didn't last long and will be made again and again."
"yeayu iam loving these cookie bars, i want to gobble them all up"
"I tried making these twice, thinking maybe I missed something the first time. If I could, I wouldn't even give this recipe a star. I had them in for 40 min and the inside was still mush, yet the top got over done. I have been baking for years, and never had a turn out like this twice in a row. I even tried adjusting heat and time in the oven. I will never make these again!"
"These were really tasty even though they weren't quite what I was looking for (I wanted something that tasted less like a blondie and more like a chocolate chip cookie). I will definitely make again, though. I used a glass pan with good results."
"These were like a blondie but with the addition of chocolate chips. Yum. I added a teaspoon of salt too with unsalted butter."
"Hmm, these might actually be too chewy for my taste. Mine weren't getting done in the middle so I had to bake them a little longer. I used a glass pan (it's all I had at the time) and they're kind of tough. Maybe I overcooked them? but otherwise they were like cookie dough... They were rather thin too. I followed the recipe exactly. Good flavor anyway."
"We love these!! I just made a batch and they are almost gone already. These are sure to be a favorite at our home. Thank you for posting the recipe."
"LOVED these!!! Very simple & quick to put together which was nice. These were absolutely divine straight out of the oven~ hot, soft & super chewy. I took the advice of another reviewer and put them in zippered storage bags quickly after cooling but they still seemed to stale rather quickly. Not a big problem though since they go so quickly!"
"These are simply amazing. I made this recipe exactly as specified and the bars are really soft and chewy---exactly what I wanted. Thank you!"
"These were ok for a quick snack. They were a bit sweet, even considering I reduced the amount of sugar to just over 1 cup. I might try them again with margarine (I thought the butter flavor was oddly strong), even less sugar, and a pinch of salt."
"This was very good for something so quick and easy to make. I did add some oatmeal, and I was out of flour so I used bread flour, and they came out great. The oatmeal added a nice nuttiness. Thanks for a great recipe! Chrissy"
"I followed this recipe and didn't change a thing and it was great! Very easy to throw together and my bars turned out chewy and tasty!"
"I made these right before dinner tonight and we just enjoyed them for dessert. They have a chewy texture and they are delicious. They couldn't be any easier to put together. Thanks for sharing this with everyone. They remind me of a cross between a blondie and a chocolate chip cookie bar."
"Peggisue, these were wonderful, these were so simple and delicious. I really enjoyed the part that "just mix all the ingredients together". Instead of seperate bowls. Makes clean-up soooo much easier. Thanks a bunch."
"These were delicious. I was a little hesitant making these as I have made the Nestle recipe before & those are very dry & salty. These were not that way at all. They were soft. I did cream the butter/sugar first, then stirred in the eggs & vanilla, mixed b.powder & Flour then stirred in and then stired in chips. I could taste the powder in some bites, maybe I didn't mix enough."
"These bars are great! i substituted margarine for the butter but followed the rest of the recipe exactly as written. They were chewy and very moist and everyone who ate them loved them!!! Thanks Peggisue for the recipe!"
