The title of this recipe does not lie. These truly are THE BEST chocolate chip cookie bars I have ever had! My friend made these for a New Year’s Eve party and I became obsessed with them and had to make them! They are the thickest, softest, chewiest, most delicious cookie bar! And easy peasy, like 30 minutes start to finish. Love that!
I almost like them as much as my super yummy Sugar Cookie Bars..almost. I’m still a sucker for frosting on a cookie. Which just gave me the idea that putting buttercream on these bad boys might make them the most insanely delicious thing I’ve ever tasted. Hmmm I’m gonna go try that out right now…
