Chocolate cookie base, fudge and 2 cups of chocolate chips – these over the top chocolate chip bars are a chocolate lover dream come true!
I have admitted before and I’m going to say it again. I’m addicted to chocolate, clearly visible by my pants size. I have to have some every day. Some people drink 3-5 cups of coffee a day. Some drink a glass or two of wine. Some run. I eat chocolate.
And not only are my cabinets overflowing with all types of chocolate chips, bars or candy but i also have a problem with chocolate cookbooks. I buy them because they are about chocolate and I‘m pretty sure I find at least one recipe to make the book worth it.
And since it’s confesing time I have to add I have bought books that were so poorly written I had been seriously thinking of going back to the store to return them. And not just minor typos, but in some No-bake chocolate treats the directions started with Heat the oven to 350F. OK. That only happened in one cookbook.
Leaving that one book aside, I have taken so many ideas from the chocolate cookbooks I’m pretty sure I need another lifetime to bake everything I have put a sticky note on.
These chocolate bars, for example, come from a trusted cookbook. Hershey’s Chocolate Cookbook
Leaving aside that I have a love affair with Hershey’s kisses, I love Hershey’s recipes. I haven’t found one that didn’t turn out great!
I have made these bars a couple of weeks ago for this new group of bloggers I just joined: The Leftovers Club <— click for details
In the original recipe the fudge layer was made only of two ingredients : melted chocolate and condensed milk. Knowing that these bars need to travel for a few days I wanted to make sure they don’t arrive at the destination a complete messy disaster so I mixed the melted chocolate and milk with some reserved cookie dough.
The fudge layer turned into a chewy rich chocolate layer when baked and the chocolate chips on top added a slightly crunchy texture to the bars. I can’t say how the original recipe turns but these were so good I had a hard time taking them to the post office to send some of them to my friend Laura at The Spiced Life
