  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-x-13-inch glass baking dish and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
  • Gradually add flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir until well combined and pour into the prepared baking dish.
  • Sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake for 24–28 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan before cutting.



Make Ahead: Covered tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap, these will keep on the counter for up to 3 days. To reheat, just place in the microwave for 15 seconds to make them gooey and warm.
Variations: You can swap out the chocolate chips for a variety of other toppings to change up these bars. Here are some of our favorite combinations:
o White chocolate chips + butterscotch chips
o M&M’s (we love to use colored M&M’s for the different holidays!)
o Chocolate chips + toffee bits or peanut butter chips
