These are very gooey. Which is a very good thing when it comes to Chocolate Chip Bars. Licking chocolate off your fingers makes baked goods taste better in my book.
This recipe comes from the cooking portion of one of my favorite blogs, Clover Lane. These bars were easy to whip up and doesn't use as much butter as most baked goods. It seems like a lot of vanilla (a whole tablespoon??) but it is not overpowering. Just yummy.
