These are even better than Chocolate Chip Cookies! Chewy, nutty and full of chocolate goodness. That's why we like them. Yummo!

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!

Kinda chewy, chocolate goodness nestled in between crunchy nuts. You can't lose making these bars. Especially since you don't have to roll them out or shape them into cookies. Winner winner!
