Chocolate Cookie Bars

Here’s everything you’ll need to make these divine Chocolate Cookie Bars!

  • Butter – this is necessary for the texture of the cookie.
  • Sugar – regular granulated sugar here, to sweeten.
  • Egg – for structure.
  • Vanilla Extract – for flavor.
  • All-Purpose Flour – this fills out the rest of the cookie bars.
  • Cocoa Powder – unsweetened, for super chocolatey flavor.
  • Baking Soda – this is our leavening agent.
  • Salt – to balance out all the sweetness.
  • Mini Chocolate Chips – I used semi-sweet chocolate chips for this recipe because milk chocolate would be too sweet.

    I love chocolaty cookie/bars like this with ice cream on top. Reminds me of my childhood.

    I was going to request brownies and ice cream for my birthday. I have changed my mind to this. My husband will be trying out this recipe next week!

    These look good. I was looking for a chocolate cookie to make an ice cream sandwiche. What size baking sheet do you spread the dough on? Do you know how the cookie freezes? Thanks for the recipe.

      It’s a half sheet pan, which is 18×13. Did you want to freeze them before or after baking. As long as you wrap them well, it should be fine either way.

    I made these this past weekend & they were so yummy! We actually cut them up & made them into ice cream sandwiches! Very very good!
