If you love a good chocolate chip cookies and are obsessed with brownies, this recipe is for you. Cookie bars are a mix of those two, crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, with melted chocolate and an extra velvety nutella swirl.
How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Making Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars is easier than you think! As always, read the whole recipe before gathering your ingredients. Play some fun music and measure everything out. Let’s do this!
- For this recipe, first melt the butter over medium heat. I prefer using European-style butter (extra fat!). Allow it to cool before adding the sugar and light brown sugar.
- Beat the butter and sugars until fully incorporated. You can do this by hand, but I prefer using my stand mixer.
- In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and whisk.
- Add 1/3 of the dry ingredients to the butter-sugar mixture, continue beating. Alternate between the eggs and the flour. Always start and finish with flour.
- Add vanilla and beat until fully incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips (yum!). And transfer to pan.
- Swirl a nutella on top and bake!
That’s it! Quick and easy chocolate chip cookie bars, SO GOOD!
