Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars – A Beautiful Mess

I love a classic. And it doesn’t get much more classic than this chocolate chip cookie bar recipe. This can be baked in an 8×8 (square) baking pan, much like brownies.

To me, this is the perfect amount for my household since I consume the majority. Ha.

I love chocolate chip cookie bars! They have all the nostalgia of chocolate chip cookies but, to me, the best part of brownies which is super soft center bars and edge pieces with the perfect milk dipping crusts. Yum!

The edges should be golden brown, while the very center may still look almost gooey. In fact, it’s OK if the center still has a little bit of gooey to it.

I like to make these chocolate chip cookie bars with semi-sweet chips, but you can use any kind of chocolate chips you have or prefer. You can also use chocolate chunks instead.

These chocolate chip cookie bars are excellent all on their own, BUT if you really want to go the extra mile, top them with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy! xo. Emma
