Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 24
  • 2 cups. + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar (light or dark is fine)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 325° F. Line a 9" x 13" baking pan with aluminum foil, letting the excess hang over the edges of the pan on the long sides of the pan.
  2. Lightly spray the foil with non-stick spray. This will allow you to lift the bars out of the pan after baking, for clean cuts. If you aren't worried about clean cuts, just spray the interior of the pan lightly with non-stick spray and eliminate the foil lining.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda; set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter, brown sugar, and sugar until combined.
  5. Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla, and whisk until well combined.
  6. Fold dry ingredients into the wet mixture.
  7. Fold in chocolate chips until just combined.
  8. Transfer mixture to prepared pan. This will be very thick. Press evenly into pan using the spatula or your fingertips.
  9. Bake for 22-23 minutes OR until top is light golden brown. Under-bake for extra chewy bars.
  10. Remove pan to wire rack to cool to room temperature.
  11. Lift bars from pan using the foil overhangs. Transfer to cutting board and cut into squares.
  12. Enjoy!
