Making delicious chocolate chip cookie bars

Chocolate chip cookie bars are delicious. They can be a fun and easy way to create a new version of the traditional chocolate chip cookie. This article explains how to make chocolate chip cookie bars.

What you'll need

Overview They’re really easy to make and can be done in a jiff.
People won’t be able to stop once they start eating them.
They also work perfectly as lunch-box snacks.
You could even try serving some with a scoop of ice cream for a great end to a dinner party.
What’s best is that you’ll probably have most of the ingredients in your larder already.
So what’s stopping you? Preheat your oven and get baking now! Things you'll need
-Various sized mixing bowls
-A spatula
-A large baking tray
-250g plain flour
-One tsp. salt
-One tsp. baking soda
-85g golden caster sugar
-85g Demerara sugar
-110g softened butter
-One tsp. vanilla
-Two eggs
-350g chocolate chips

Method

Method Preheat oven to 190 degrees C Combine all of the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside.
In another bowl, cream the sugars, butter and vanilla until smooth you have a smooth paste.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until they are fully blended.
Slowly add your dry ingredients and mix well.
Finally, stir in all of the chocolate chips. Spread the dough in an even layer on your baking tray.
You want the bars to fill the entire tray. If the bars get a crispy edge remember to cut these off before you serve. Bake the bars in your preheated oven for around 15 to 20 minutes until they are light golden brown in colour.
Leave them to cool on a large wire rack for at least half an hour. Finally cut them into bar sizes of your choice. The recipe can make up to forty bars. You could also try making the same recipe but substituting the chocolate for the same amount of chopped nuts, Smarties or any other chocolate you enjoy. Jelly babies are always a delicious idea for this type of treat too, remember to chop them up into relatively small pieces before adding them to the dough. For a saltier and slightly healthier version you can also substitute half of the butter for peanut butter, crunchy or smooth. Final word If you have any allergies the recipe is again open for adaptation, substituting gluten free flour for thee plain flour will make them gluten free chocolate chip cookies bars.
