The recipe behind my cookie addiction

It’s only fair that I reveal this recipe. After all, its put most of my friends and family into a cookie coma at one point or another. I’m going to claim that it’s my Mom’s fault, since it’s her recipe! Of all of the desserts she makes, this one is the most simple, and most likely will sound pretty average to you: Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars. But allow me warn you…it’s not average. I’ve had this memorized since I started to bake. It’s that good, and once you make these, you may never go back to pre-made cookie dough….you won’t want to! On a countless number of occasions, I’ve eaten so much dough that I haven’t been able to fill the baking pan…major oops.

I bake these at least once a week, mostly because I never get sick of them, and I typically have the ingredients on hand at all times. These are my go-to dessert for office parties, cookie swaps, and get-togethers with friends. Just make sure you keep one for yourself…they seem to disappear VERY quickly. A guaranteed hit for any occasion. Enjoy!

1 stick butter
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2 ¼ cups white flour
1 cup (or as many as desired) milk or dark chocolate chips (I used dark!)
1 cup heath-bar bits(optional)
cooking spray


1)Preheat oven to 350

2) Soften butter in the microwave on low power—do not melt.

3) Once the butter is softened, mix in sugars with a spatula.

4) Once mixed, add in both eggs and vanilla. Stir until mixed.

5) Add baking soda, and gradually add the flour.

6) Once mixed, add chocolate chips.

7) Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes, or until browned. (I like mine slightly undercooked. That way, they stay doughy when they’re cold!)


freshly baked







Thick, dense, doughy, chewy.  Good luck eating just one :)
