Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I don't know about you but I could eat chocolate chip cookies for days, even better if their made with chocolate chunks instead of chips, chunks are just so much better.

Something I like more than chocolate chip cookies? Chocolate chip cookie bars! I mean it's basically the equivalent of cookie cake and my love for Wegman's cookie cake is everlasting.

I made these a while back with coconut and sprinkles and brought them to the boys and they were gobbled up within the hour so I knew they were a hit. I whipped up a batch when I was home last week. I wish I had one right now!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
source: Two Peas and Their Pod

2 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
12 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix the melted butter and sugars together until combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix on low, just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
4. Pour cookie dough into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the spatula. Bake cookie bars for 25-30 minutes or until the top of the bars are light golden brown and the edges start to pull away from the pan. Cool bars on a wire rack to room temperature. Cut bars into squares and serve.
