This summer my sister-in-law made these chocolate chip squares. The recipe was passed down from a friend so I am unsure of the origin, but if I could find the original source rest assured that I would give them a piece of mind and call them out on being an enabler to my cookie addiction.
These squares are easy to make. My four and five year-olds followed the recipe with simple prompts and were proud of their culinary skills.
And any recipe that leaves one bowl for cleanup is a hit in my books.
Please don’t send me hateful emails if you make these and eat the entire pan in one sitting. Consider yourself warned!
¾ cup of brown sugar
2 cups of flour
1 cup of soft unsalted butter (I used slightly less)
1 tsp of vanilla (I used more, but then again I could bathe in this stuff!)
1 cup of chocolate chips (give or take the handful that my two year shoved in his mouth)
Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Once thoroughly mixed, press into a 8X8 or 9X9 square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes. Cut into squares while still hot.
