My husband loves chocolate. I swear he is worse than most women when it comes to craving chocolate. And chocolate chip cookies, watch out! He’ll run someone over for a good, soft chocolate chip cookie.
I came across this recipe on the recipe blog Real Mom Kitchen and knew I had to give it a try just for him. These chocolate chip bars came out so great. They are perfectly soft and extra chocolaty. Needless to say, these didn’t last very long in my house at all!
Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Barsfrom Real Mom Kitchen
2 & 1/8 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
12 tablespoons butter (1 1/2 sticks), melted and cooled slightly
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Adjust the oven rack to lower-middle position.
2. Line a 9X13-inch baking pan with foil, letting the excess hang over the edges of the pan by about 1 inch so you can grab those edges and pull the brownies from the pan after they have baked. Spray the foil-lined pan with nonstick cooking spray.
3. Mix the flour, salt, and baking soda together in medium bowl; set aside. Whisk the melted butter and sugars in a large bowl until combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix well.
4. Using a rubber spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until just combined; do not overmix. Fold in the chocolate chips and turn the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the spatula.
5. Bake until the top of the bars is light golden brown, slightly firm to the touch, and edges start pulling away from sides of pan, 24-28 minutes. Cool on a wire rack to room temperature.
6. Remove the bars from the pan by lifting the foil overhang and transfer them to a cutting board. Cut into 2-inch squares and serve.
