Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I have been jam-packed with homework and sports lately, so posting has been rare. High school is tough, especially when tennis is just ending and basketball is just starting up. High school tennis went very well, and I ended up as the #2 ranked player on the team at the end of the season! Now basketball is beginning, and lacrosse begins right after that. You could say that my schedule is very packed!!

But I always have time for baking, of course! These chocolate chip cookie bars look fantastic, don’t they?! Just like a normal cookie, but a different shape and a bit thicker.

These bars are so easy to make! With only four ingredients, I don’t know how you could go wrong. Surprisingly, there is vanilla cake mix in the recipe. It doesn’t make the bars extra-cakey, but it does add a nice texture and flavor. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

They’re like a stack of gold bars! Mouth-watering deliciousness sitting right in front of your eyes on this little plate! Don’t you just wish that you could reach through the screen and grab one? I sure do, because these Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars are already gone at my house. I have used these bars as dessert in my school lunches. It is definitely a happy moment when I open my lunch bag. Great for school lunches and snacks?! I don’t know how these cookie bars could be any better…

I will be trying to post more now that I am getting familiar with the larger workload and sports commitment of high school. Don’t worry, RecipeBoy is here to stay!!
