Chocolate Chip Ooey Gooey Bars

Chocolate Chip Ooey Gooey Bars are a great option for Christmas Cookie Exchanges and holiday parties. These brownies have it all–chocolate (enuf said!), a cream cheese filling that is not cooked until it’s dry, but instead is left ooey and gooey in the centers. Plus, the crust starts with a cake mix so it’s incredibly easy as well as tasty.

Ok, any of you who follow my blog know how much I love cookies, brownies and bars. I have over 250 of them posted on this blog! I make them frequently for gifts to give to others. Many times when I make meals for friends, I make cookies for dessert. That’s because most kids will eat cookies over cake or pies. Plus, cookies are usually a lot easier to pack up and take along to any potluck or food fest.

I was talking to the front office staff for our new home builder a couple of weeks ago and one of the guys informed me that I could feel free to bring more cookies to their office any time. 🙂 I’d dropped off goodies on a couple of occasions before. So when I knew we were going to stop by their office, I looked in my pantry to see what I could whip up quickly.

I had been wanting to make this version of Ooey Gooey Bars for a couple of years, since my M&M, Blueberry, Peach, Red Velvet and Peppermint versions all turned out quite well. This is one of those easy recipes with very few ingredients involved. I usually keep all the ingredients stocked in my pantry or refrigerator on a regular basis, so it was no problem whipping it up very quickly.

If you’re looking for a scrumptious brownie or bar-type cookie for your holiday baking, then make Chocolate Chip Ooey Gooey Bars a high priority. Everyone is sure to love them. We did.
