I used two 10oz bags of Nestle's dark chocolate morsels, 1/2 cup Sugar in the Raw instead of white sugar, and almond extract ( because someone put back an empty vanilla bottle!) They were just delicious and my grandsons loved them! Read More

I didn't read the reviews so I baked for 40 minutes. They smelled a little burned and were hard around the edges. They taste ok, just not what I was expecting. Read More

These are extremely easy, and use ingredients I keep on hand all the time. I like being able to melt the butter first, as I keep mine in the freezer and HATE to have to wait for it to come to room temperature. But this worked really well. Yummy cookie bars just the way the recipe is written. ******UPDATE****** The second batch I changed up a little bit. Instead of vanilla -- I'm out!!--- I used some orange oil for flavor, and tossed in a handful of coconut flakes. I also used a mixture of white and dark chocolate chips, and made a recipe and a half. I really prefer this way. The orange oil enriches the recipe, and I was able to cut back a bit on the sugar by using white chips. Read More

Glad I read the reviews first. 30 min. is perfect time anything more would be overbaked. Otherwise followed recipe to a T & very happy with the results! Read More

This cookie is a favorite with my family. When our Son-in-law visits I will triple the recipe for him. It's also a favorite with my neighbors and friends. I haven't changed a single measure or ingredient in the recipe. Once in a while I add peanut butter chips to it along with the dark chocolate chips. We have 3 adult Son's that love peanut butter. Make sure you use real butter not margarine, there is a huge difference. Also make sure you use dark chocolate chips. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Cut recipe in half because I didn t have enough butter. Also used semi sweet chocolate chips as that was all I had. Baked in 8x8 pan for 30 mins. YUM! Will definitely make again! Read More
