There are some recipes which have a history with family. When I was younger and learning to bake, the very first recipe I learned was for chocolate chip bars. It’s a recipe I don’t go back to often enough, but it is tasty and just complicated enough that I need to pay attention when making it. A couple weeks ago I needed to take some bars to work to say thank you to my colleagues for their hard work and efforts, so I looked at the ingredients I had readily accessible. This recipe quickly met the needs for what I could do.
I took the pan to work and gave it to them there, so I didn’t get after photos of the bars, but here’s what they looked like going in:
Chocolate Chip Bars
2 c flour
2 c brown sugar
1/2 c margarine
Mix “A” ingredients and reserve 1 cup. Add to mixture Part B:
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 c milk
Mix and pour into greased 9×13 pan.
Add 1 c chocolate chips to reserve cup of “A.” Sprinkle over batter. bake at 325 degrees for 35 minutes.
