Double Delicious Cookie Bars

I found this recipe six years ago. I think I’ve made it two or three dozen times. They are incredibly delicious for something so easy to make. Even though they use peanut butter chips, it’s really a subtle flavor of peanut butter. They taste like chocolate chip cookies- just in a bar form. Except they are creamier and more addicting. Why is everything made in bars addicting?

Modifications: Trust me, look at the recipe. 4 cups of chips in one 13x9 dessert? Thats alot. It was really sweet. The 3 cups of chocolate chips overpower the 1 cup of peanut butter chips. Not balanced! So take my advice and distribute the chips in even portions: 1 cup of peanut butter chips and 1 cup of chocolate chips (half of it is going to be for the drizzle on top). These adaptations will please everyone- even a sweet tooth. Use only 1/2 teaspoon shortening.     

I like how they tell you to melt your butter in the 13x9 pan in the oven as its preheating. No need to even dirty a bowl! These are so easy. Just don’t burn your butter. Oh, and they say to bake 25-30 minutes. What? Mine bake up in 18-20 minutes. And they taste amazing the next day!

Hershey’s also provides a variation to this recipe: just add coconut to make Chippy Chewy Bars. Those are great too.
