Yesterday was my sister’s birthday so the kids and I made these chocolate chip cookie blondie bars to celebrate. Because if I lived close to her then I would have been bringing these to her. She’s pregnant with twins and I am pretty sure every pregnant lady needs these deliciously chewy and chocolatey cookie bars. In fact, everyone needs these because they are so crazy delicious.

Chocolate chip cookies seem to be the universal treat that everybody loves, so why not make it easy and make them into chocolate chip cookie bars instead. No more doing batches of cookies, instead you spread the chocolate chip cookie dough into a pan and bake!

I’ll be totally honest and say that these were gone in 1 day at my house. My kids went crazy over them. My 2 year old also decided that she needed to take a plate of them outside and then leave it out there. Only to come back later and find ants all over it 🙂

These bars bake up in a 9×13 baking pan and they are thick, chewy, and buttery cookie bars. The edge pieces are a bit crispy (in a good way) and the middle pieces are so soft. I normally don’t like edge pieces of bars but these were an exception. They were my favorite!

I love using the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips in these bars because then there is more chocolate spread through out the bar. You can use regular semi-sweet chocolate chips if that’s what you have. But try the mini ones, I love them and always have to buy a couple bags of them when I go grocery shopping.

I used parchment paper to line the pan which made cutting these bars so easy. Once they have cooled you just lift the bars out by the excess parchment paper and then cut.

To help the parchment paper stay put in the pan, spray the pan first with cooking spray and then lay your parchment paper into the pan. The cooking spray will help the parchment paper stay in place so you can spread the batter easier.

It’s Friday so it’s the perfect reason to get in the kitchen and mix up these blondie bars. You can mix up the batter in the time it takes the oven to heat up. Enjoy these with a tall glass of cold milk!

Ingredients
  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted & cooled slightly
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray and then line with parchment paper. The cooking spray will help the parchment paper stay in place. Or, just use cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir with a whisk to break up clumps
  3. In a bowl, or bowl of a stand mixer, combine melted and slightly cooled butter and brown sugar. Blend together until combined.
  4. Add in 1 egg and then blend. Add the other egg and vanilla extract and blend together until combined.
  5. Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix until combined and no flour pockets remain in the batter. Add the miniature chocolate chips, reserving some for sprinkling on top if wanted. Stir to combine. 

  6. Dump batter into the prepared pan and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the reserved mini chocolate chips over top and gently press down. 

  7. Bake for 24-26 minutes. The edges will be a light golden brown and be "wrinkly" and the middle will look pale. Let cool completely.
Recipe Notes

Mine are perfectly cooked at 25 minutes exactly. The edges will be a light golden brown and look "wrinkly". The middle will still be pale and look underdone but that's what you want.

 

To help keep the parchment paper in place in the pan, spray the pan first with cooking spray and then line with parchment paper. Be sure and leave a light overhang so you can easily lift the bars out to cut.

 

To help the butter be slightly cooled, simply melt the butter in the microwave until it's only half melted, about 40-45 seconds. Use a fork to stir together and that should finish melting the butter. You'll be left with slightly cooled melted butter.

    February 18, 2018 at 12:01 am Not sure why, but mine came out cakey and dry :( The only thing I changed was substituting margarine instead of butter so that it would be dairy-free. Definitely didn't come out like any of the other reviews!

      February 19, 2018 at 4:00 pm Using margarine instead of butter is a huge change! The reason they did not come out well is because you used Margarine. Margarine does not work in this recipe which is why the recipe calls for butter. Sorry your version did not work out. Thanks for visiting.

      March 2, 2018 at 9:05 pm If they came out cakey and dry then it sounds like they were overbaked. My trick with bars is that you should never pull out a pan of bars from the oven that looks like they're done. As they cool, they always cook more and come together. Sounds yummy with ice cream!

    February 28, 2018 at 8:45 am Quick question, do you use salted butter or unsalted butter? I know that can make a difference in baking. They look delicious and I’m wanting to try them this week! Thank you!

      March 2, 2018 at 8:49 pm I always use salted butter for everything. I find that using unsalted butter does not provide a lot of flavor to baked goods. If you do use unsalted you usually need to add a bit more salt. Enjoy!

    March 11, 2018 at 5:42 pm I saw a couple people had issue making these dairy free. I made these gluten and dairy free and wanted to share! I substituted the flour with Pillsbury gluten free flour and used a banana and 2 tbsp of earth balance dairy free butter in place of the butter. I also used the Enjoy Life chocolate chips. They do have a small hint of banana flavor but they turned out delicious! Thank you for the recipe!!
