Fast and simple one bowl chocolate chip bar recipe

20 May

Image I do love a choc chip. Often the introduction of choc chips to a recipe takes it from blah to wow, can I have more? As much as I love choc chip biscuits I find it tedious to be rolling/flattening/baking tray after tray. So when I stumbled across a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars by the wonderful Two Peas and Their Pod I knew at once I’d be baking it. It all the boxes I was after. Choc chips. Vanilla. Crunchy. Kid-makeable. I used their recipe as the base but tweaked it. If you want to use their recipe and see their very pretty blog click here:


150g melted butter [at room temperature]

2 cups self-raising flour

1 egg

1 egg yolk

3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup caster sugar

dash vanilla LET’S GET TO IT:

Preheat oven to 170C and line a 20×30 pan with non-stick paper, leaving some overhang at one end.

Beat the sugars, vanilla and melted butter in bowl of electric mixer until well-combined.

Add egg and egg yolk, beat in.

With mixer on low stir in the flour until all combined.

With a spoon add choc chips.

Place batter in pan and bake for 20-ish minutes/until golden brown [you may need another 5 or so minutes, depending on your oven]. Allow to cool on wire rack before slicing into squares.

      Despite evidence to the contrary I am not a big sweets eater but I must admit, several pieces of this have been sampled today…
