Chocolate Chip Bars

August 18, 2008

Minnesotans love anything baked in a 9″ x 13″ pan- whether it’s bars (a dessert) or hot dish (a casserole). These bars are like a chocolate chip cookies in brownie form, but they’re a lot gooier than other recipes I’ve found, and they’re very quick to make. Be sure to make these with a mixer- I’ve done it by hand a few times and they are don’t come out quite as attractive.

Ingredients:

2 c light brown sugar

2 eggs

2/3 c vegetable or canola oil

1/4 c hot water

2 c flour

1 t baking powder

1/2 t baking soda

1 t salt

1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

Heat oven to 350°. Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. Beat together sugar, eggs, oil and water; add the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into greased 9″ x 13″ pan and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until the center is set. Cool and cut into squares.

    This is still one of my all-time favorite of Sarah’s many recipes. I made them for a potluck this past weekend and everyone raved about them – they will make you very popular! (One girl even told me a woman at her church sells something like this, for $28 a tray, and hers are LESS gooey. I threatened to come to her church and sell mine for $25.) So yummers, and they even stay soft and gooey for days afterwards! They’re best with vanilla ice cream to help dilute the sweetness.
