I am a country girl stuck in the city, for the time-being. I enjoy the country way of life, and practice that in my home as best I can by canning and preserving foods, cooking and baking from scratch, crocheting, living vicariously thru the many blogs I follow about country life. I enjoy learning about raising livestock, and glean from my past employment and personal experiences of working with animals to fuel some of my postings. I have 5 cats, who keep my life interesting. And I am also an amateur poet. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this Farmer-gal who is caught in town, for now.

Championship Chocolate Chip Bars

I haven't made these for a while, and thought I'd do that today. Here are the steps with pix for Championship Chocolate Chip Bars.

Gather the ingredients - the recipe and directions are below.

Combine flour and brown sugar, then cut in butter or margarine till crumbly. Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips.

Press this mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish, and bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15 minutes.

In same bowl, while crust is baking, combine sweetened condensed milk, egg, vanilla.

Mix in the rest of the chocolate chips and chopped nuts.

This is what it looks like when it's all mixed together.

When crust is done baking, spread mixture over crust, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown.

Let cool to room temperature and cut into squares. Store covered at room temperature.

Below is the recipe with full directions.

Take care everyone. And have a great weekend.

Thanks, Julie. They are decadent for sure, very rich. I can't eat them alone, they're too rich, and my sugar spikes - I'm a little hypoglycemic, but other than that they are very delish. I hope you like the recipe. Thanks for posting.

Kathy, it is a rainy day here in Southern Maine - a perfect opportunity to give your recipe a whirl! Hope it is sunny there in KY.!

Those look good. Plus I think I could bake them in my toaster oven and not heat up the kitchen.(103 yesterday!).

Thanks for the recipe.
Have a great day.
