I had these as a child, and this looked like the exact same on my Nanny made, so I tried these and they were right on with what I remembered. So delicious, even hot out of the oven oozing with the melted chocolate and loaded with nuts. Could not be any better. We enjoy them as much as Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Thanks for this bar recipe. I cooked it halfway between the two cooking times. It was a little crumbly. Next time I will not use as many chocolate chips.

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!

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