Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Bars
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Her Ooey Gooey Chocolate Chunk Bars looked perfect. Bill was driving home from visiting his parents in Illinois as a wicked spring blizzard was hitting the Midwest. Knowing he’d be white-knuckling it the whole distance (or maybe it was me that would be the nervous Nellie), I wanted to have some fresh from the oven, chocolate treat waiting for him.
I tweaked them slightly by browning my butter, then cooling it, and adding milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, and white chocolate chunks…Danielle used all dark chocolate. Feel free to use your favorite chocolates chunks or chips…these will be fantastic any which way you make this twist on Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars! These Brown Butter Easter Cookies are another fun way to use brown butter!
