My mother made this recipe when I was younger. Its wonderful! The only thing I would like to comment is that you need to wait 10 minutes before you swirl the choc chips. Then cook for another 10-15 minutes for the marble effect to look right. 3 minutes is not long enough.. that's why some people commented that it didn't swirl correctly. Read More

I don't know WHAT happened with this recipe - I followed it exactly and just wound up with a mushy bubbly mess. I let it bake for as long as I could without burning it but it was like there was way to much butter (I actually used 1 cup of margarine). Perhaps if I had cut it back to 1/2 cup or even added an extra cup of flour it would have turned out. Very disappointing Read More

I thought this recipe turned out pretty good. The bars were a hit with my friends.:) On suggestion from the other reviewers I used less (only 1/2 cup) of butter. This resulted in a less "bubbly" or "squishy" bar. Unlike other reviewers I thought 3 minutes was plenty of time for the chocolate chips to melt. My advice is to check on them at 3 minutes. Poke a chip with a butter knife. If it's soft it should marbleize just fine. If not give it a little more time - not too much or the bars will set. Also I decided to sprinkle a 1/2 cup pecans over the bars after 10 minutes of baking because I like pecans in chocolate chip cookies. Finally I lightly covered the pan with foil during the last three minutes of cook time because I noticed that the surface of the bars was cooking faster than the center. The bars turned out great. As you can see in the picture I posted they look pretty too.:) Read More

Quick and a snap to make. I got rave reviews for these at a birthday party and by everyone who comes over after I've made them. Add more chocolate chips and they disappear even faster! Read More

Although this recipe didn't turn out the way I expected it was delicious. After 3 minutes the chips were not melted enough to swirl so the cookies didn't look marbelized. But it was just enough to make the cookies taste very rich. I'd call them 'blondies' and I plan to make them often. Read More

My mom discovered this recipe when I was in my pre-teens. I loved baking it and we all loved eating it! Kids really like to "swirl" the chocolate chips. It's fast and easy too. Read More

I feel there may be an error in this recipe in the amount of butter that it calls for. I too followed the recipe perfectly and my result was also very squishy and mushy. I had to double the baking time to get it to firm up a bit. As someone suggested I baked it 10 minutes and then swirled the chocolate chips. Took me a minute or two to master the "swirling technique" but I got okay in the end. Very tasty recipe but I may suggest reducing the butter some. I also added about half a cup more chips than it called for. Made it extra chocolatey:) Read More
