Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Chocolate chip cookie bars include pockets of melted chocolate throughout and are incredibly soft, chewy, and buttery. So simple and quick to put together!
Soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie bars
When you are in the need for something sweet but lack the energy or time to prepare individual cookies, Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars are the ideal recipe. The bars are prepared more quickly, easily, and quickly than the traditional chocolate chip cookies but are very similar to them.
These are just as tasty as the classic form, but they can all be made in one pan! It is one of my all-time favorite dessert recipes to prepare. If you have a sweet tooth and not a lot of time, you can prepare this quick treat.
The bars have the delicious chewiness that distinguishes every great cookie while still being particularly soft and dense. Along with being filled with chocolate chips and having a lovely touch of brown sugar, vanilla, and salt, they are also quite soft and chewy.
Additionally, producing a larger quantity is a breeze. What is the hardest part of succeeding? Choosing whether you want a thick scoop of ice cream or a glass of cold milk to go with it (I recommend both)!

- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 cup unsalted butter (melted and a bit cooled)
- 1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
- 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs (room temperature)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- Line an 8×8 or 9×9 inch baking pan with parchment paper, in a way so it has handles on two of the sides, for easy bars removal.
- Do your flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cornstarch to a medium bowl and whisk to combine, set aside.
- Add the melted butter to a large bowl, and add the sugars, whisk together, until well combined.
- Add the eggs and vanilla to the butter mixture and mix together well.
- Add the dry mixture into the wet and mix until just combined, then using a spatula, stir in the chocolate chips, leaving out 1/4 cup.
- Transfer the dough to the prepared baking dish and smooth the top. Top with the reserved 1/4 cup of chocolate chips.
- Bake for about 35-40 minutes, the edges should be set and golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean. If the dessert starts to brown really quickly, cover loosely with parchment paper.
- Let the cookie bars cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, lift and transfer to the counter to cool completely before cutting.
