I’m so glad these cookie bars turned out OK.

For the past few days, nearly everything I’ve made have turned out horrendously. This is due to some very humid weather in our area.

Tip: Don’t try to sprinkle cookies with powdered sugar when it’s 86 degrees outside. Even with your air conditioner on, they still may look like disgusting piles of mush. 😕

Forget those terrible cookies! Today, we have cookie bars and they are far from mushy. They are soft, chewy, thick and full of chocolaty goodness.
