These bars are even better than Choc Chip cookies if that is possible. I added loads of nuts, chips and even coconut. Absolutely yummmm!!!

Chocolate Chip cookies to the 10th power! I loaded them up with milk chocolate chips and nuts. They couldn't be better.

Thumbs up all the way! Chocolate chip cookies in a bar. These are easy. I added extra nuts to this first batch. Can't ever have too many!

Congo Bars were a childhood favorite and I was happy to find it here. I couldn't wait until they were done so I could indulge. Delicious bars loaded up with some walnuts. Like Chocolate Chip Cookies on steroids!
