Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Thanksgiving is over (everyone survived) and the countdown to Christmas is beginning while I start running around like a chicken with my head chopped off. I have a full month of holiday events ahead of me (who doesn’t?). If I seem scattered in posting through the month of December it may have something to do with this, or the copious amounts of alcohol that always seemed to get purchased this time of year.

Today I started digging out the holiday decorations and actually did a little shopping (that’s right – Black Friday shopping). It wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be, however, I wasn’t looking for a 52″ flat screen TV either. Sure enough, the things I actually needed weren’t on the shelves. Go figure…

Here’s a quick any easy recipe if you need to step away from the leftover pies but still want something sweet.



When baking things like bars, I tend to be a little lackadaisical about measuring, so I may have short changed the chocolate chips – or I would have added a lot more. I also will add some chopped walnuts to these next time.

Now, for the rest of the day, no more cooking. :)


  1. These look really good. I admire your bravery. I will never go shopping on black Friday. Internet will do just fine and dandy. Good luck getting everything accomplished this month.

  2. Yummy! This looks like it would hit the spot.

  3. I LOVE thick and chewy.
