We like to call these cookies “lazy bars” because this recipe is so easy to put together. No scooping or chilling is required. These are perfect for when you are needing to make a quick dessert and everyone always raves over these bars! Shh…we won’t tell them how little time and effort these are to make.

Chocolate chip cookies have always been a favorite with everyone in our house and they are requested often. However, I get crazy busy, as i’m sure most of you do as well, with sporting events and all of our other activities. Making batches of any dessert is just time consuming and i’m this has been the best alternative that keeps everyone begging for more! Plus, it keeps us from eating all of the cookie dough while waiting on batches to bake.

Ingredient you will need:

  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Flour

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Recipe

I love these cookie bars plain with a glass of milk. We also love to serve these with a scoop of ice cream, especially right out of the oven when they are all warm and the chocolate is melted – YUM!

You’re going to love the fact that you can whip up a pan of these Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars in just 10 minutes. You’ll love how delicious these are even more! They are buttery, chewy and the perfect texture that makes these always such a huge hit with everyone.

Tips:

  • To achieve clean cuts to bars, I like to line pan with parchment paper. Let the foil overhang on the long sides of the pan so you can easily pull the bars out of the pan and cut easily.
  • Make sure the butter is melted. This gives the bars the extra chewiness and flavor that makes them so special.
  • This recipe is better left in bar form, so do not try to make traditional cookies with this recipe.
  • We use more brown sugar than regular sugar for a chewy cookie bar. Make sure you pack the brown sugar in your measuring cup.
  • Use whatever chocolate chips you prefer. I usually use semi-sweet chocolate chips, but I have made them with milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. Chocolate chunks or even butterscotch would be delicious as well!
  • You can sprinkle the cookie bars with sea salt for a sweet and salty dessert.
