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!

We love these things and I make them at least once a week. I like making them when my grandchildren are here so I don't eat the whole pan myself! They are that good!

An old time classic that I enjoyed growning up and have made them several times recently for my grandchildren. They always ask me to make them because they are bigger than chocolate chip cookies and taste twice as good! Can't leave out the nuts on these at my house. The kids would kill me if I did!
