Soft and chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars recipe! Filled with mini chocolate chips, chocolate chunks and walnuts.
Today, with these Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars, I have partnered with DoubleTree by Hilton in celebration of their new Cook(ie) Book, Start with Cookies. All opinions expressed below are completely my own.
In honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day on August 4, I thought I’d post an easy and crowd-pleasing recipe that everyone should have. We all have a chocolate chip cookie recipe we love, but do you know what is even better than chocolate chip cookies? Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars full of chocolate, sugar and walnuts.
Instead of scooping your cookies one by one, you simply spread the dough into a 9×13 pan and bake. Once they have cooled down, cut into small squares and call it a day. I mean, you can definitely cut these when they’re warm (because warm cookies always win over room temperature cookies), but you run the risk of not getting perfect edges. If you’re not photographing them for your blog (ahem), then by all means, dig in immediately. Perhaps with some ice cream too.
If you just want to skip the making and baking, head over to a DoubleTree by Hilton near you. Today, they are offering their amazing, warm chocolate chip cookies FREE to all hotel guests AND the general public. That’s us!
DoubleTree by Hilton just released a new Cook(ie) Book called Start with Cookies. This book features 29 DoubleTree Cookie recipes from 16 different countries around the world. The best part is that you can download the digital cookie book instantly FREE by clicking here.
There is no greater warm welcome received than by a warm chocolate chip cookie, right?
Here are a few more photos of my tasty little treats with a printable recipe at the bottom. Have a great day, friends!
