It is incredible the combination of chocolate, whether milk, semisweet or dark, plus creamy sweet butter and white, golden or brown sugar can combine with a few other ingredients and create a new sweet treat every time.
If one of your favourite things in the world are chocolate chip cookies you will probably enjoy these bars. Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars to be exact. I found this recipe back in 2003 on Recipes Plus. You can switch out the chocolate chips for butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips or a combination of both.
You will need:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup Golden Corn Syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, peanut butter chips
3/4 cup chopped pecans
Cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in the corn syrup then egg and vanilla.
in a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add this to the creamed mixture in 2 additions, mixing until blended. Stir in half of the chocolate chips and the pecans.
Grease and line a 13 x 9-inch cake pan with parchment. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top.
Bake at 325F for about 25 minutes. Just until set and golden brown.
