Total Time 47 minutes
Servings 30 bars


  • 1 cup butter- softened to room temperature 2 sticks
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar firmly packed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 bag


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a 9×13 baking pan or casserole dish with parchment paper and then spray lightly with oil or cooking spray. Be sure to leave a little hanging over to make removal easy.
  • Combine butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat together until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and then beat until just combined.
  • Slowly stir in the flour, baking soda and salt, mixing until just combined.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips, reserving a small portion to add to the top.
  • Spread the dough into the prepared pan. It’s pretty sticky, so I like to lightly wet my hands with water and press the dough into an even layer.
  • Top with reserved chocolate chips and then bake for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Allow to cool to room temperature before removing from the pan and cutting.
