This is another one of my husband’s favorite cookies, well I guess it’s mine too. For this one I took my best chocolate chip cookie recipe and turned it into bar cookies. Bar cookies just seem easier to make and there are less pans to wash afterwards. As you can see in the picture they are totally gooey in the middle. If you like hard cookies, then these are not for you.

I agree I think the bars are much easier to make, and I love how thick and gooey they turn out. Also a lot easier to add some ice cream on the top if you want.
Thanks, and yes they are great warm out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
I’ve been using this recipe for years for the vest chocolate chip cookies ever, so when I can across your post with the chocolate chip frosting recipe and link to these bars, I had to try them. Now it’s another favorite. Think I like the bars better than the cookies, and they’re faster to make. ?
Thanks! I’m so glad you like them.
