Recipe Notes

The only time I used the mixer was to cream the butter and sugar. I just stirred all the other ingredients by hand.
Be sure to not will cook a little more in the pan once you remove it from the oven.
You can change the chocolate chips for other "chip" varieties if you want!
These are wonderful the next day or can always stick a bar in the microwave for 10 seconds to warm up!
