Congo Bars

I love cookies but sometimes I don't feel like taking the time to make them. That's what I love about these bars. You get the same great taste of a cookie but it's a bar instead! It's so much easier and just as delicious! The great thing about this recipe is you can add whatever ingredients you like. I used milk chocolate chips and m&ms but you can pretty much use anything. The possibilities are endless.

Congo Bars
2 3/4 cup flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 lb light brown sugar
3 eggs

1 cup chocolate chips (any variety)

Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9x13 baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In a bowl of a stand mixer, mix together brown sugar and softened butter until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla and mix. Add flour mixture and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into prepared 9x13 baking pan.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Cool completely. Remove foil from pan, cut into squares, and enjoy!
