Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Egg
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate chips

Butter: These require 2 sticks ( yes!) of butter. Make sure they are softened.

Sugar: If desired, you can use brown sugar or coconut palm sugar as a replacement.

Chocolate Chips: I like to use dark chocolate chips, but, regular semi sweet will work just fine.

Can I make these in a 9 x 13 pan? Yes. I made ours in a flat rimmed baking sheet that was about 10-12 inches in size. If you don’t have one on hand, then, use the 9 x 13. However, you will have to adjust your baking time.

A few notes:

  • Your batter is going to be on the thicker side. For easier spreading, spray your spatula with a bit of non stick cooking spray beforehand. This will make getting the batter into the pan much easier.
  • When spreading the batter, don’t rush it. Take your time. Rushing may cause the batter to tear. Which, isn’t a big deal, but, is frustrating.
  • After baking the bars, you will remove them from the oven and sprinkle the top with chocolate chips. After that, place them back into the oven. This gives the chocolate chips a chance to soften up, making spreading them much easier. When you place the pan back into the oven with the chocolate chips, only let them sit in the oven for about 30-45 seconds. You don’t want a pool of melted chocolate on your bars. It is simply to soften them up!
