There is one way of taking the chocolate chip cookie to a new level that I did not mention that I go over in this recipe; the chocolate chip cookie bar.
My anniversary was just days ago and I wanted to make something special for my partner in life so I thought of this cookie bar. I plan to make delicious red velvet cupcakes, but I decided I wanted to do something new that I had never made before for him; now to just find some lovely cookie baskets to fill with the bars and we it will be presentable!
This super rich dessert is filled with chocolate morsels that melt in the mouth.
The recipe has Jello vanilla pudding mix and Betty Crocker yellow cake mix blended to a gooey consistency and baked in a Wilton cookie pan to mouth watering perfection.
This time I used a whole bag of Enjoy Life semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 2 cups) and it made the bars very rich, but if you are into a more savory taste and less richness add only 1 cup.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
- 1 box Betty Crocker Yellow Cake Mix
- 1 box Jello Vanilla Pudding Mix
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 bag (1 bag for super rich) semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom of 9x13 baking pan.
- Add Betty Crocker yellow cake mix, Jello vanilla pudding mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and water to medium sized mixing bowl. Mix well until blended.
- Pour in semi-sweet chocolate chips and fold into batter mixture.
- Once well blended pour mixture into baking pan and spread evenly over the entire bottom of pan.
- Bake at 350ºF for 30 minutes. Edges will be browning and middle a beautiful golden color. Note: Middle will be wobbly as it's supposed to retain a gooey center, so if you prefer a more firm cookie bar allow an extra 10 minutes cooking time.
- Allow to rest for about 10-15 minutes to cool and firm slightly before serving.
