Chocolate Chip Bars

I often find myself craving cookies without the desire to make individual cookies. Mostly because I’m lazy and sometimes because I have had too much wine. Before you feel too badly for me, I found a solution – Chocolate Chip Bars.

These were a favorite of my Mom’s when we had to make cookies fast, but had other things to do other than clearing out a batch every 14 minutes. These can be made in a 9×13, a heart shaped cake pan, a skillet, or a microwaveable mug. The best part about these is you can make them as “done” as you want. My preference is to eat them with a spoon.
