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

    I made some layered bars last week with sweetened cond milk and a chocolate cookie base and put Milky Ways in them. Yours with all those pretty chocolate & white choc chips are so inviting. Pinning!

  2. Colleen (Souffle Bombay) says

    Wow that is a seriously flavor packed cookie bar! If the postmen only know what they were driving around with lol!

  3. says

    These are chocolate OVERLOAD in the best possible way!

    And I had to laugh at the no bake baking instruction…how did THAT get past an editor?!

  4. Heather @ Sugar Dish Me says

    I also have a major chocaholic tendency. AND coffee. I need both. These are so gorgeous! Hershey’s is majorly trusted– they have my favorite chocolate cake recipe! So i know these have to be as awesome as they look!

  5. Anita at Hungry Couple says

    Wow. I have a chocolate problem, too, which is why I can’t keep any in the house. Seems I have a willpower problem as well. :) I especially love the white chips on these.

  6. Carol | a cup of mascarpone says

    These are sinful, Roxana…but I’d eat every single one put in front of me!!!

  7. says

    Roxy, your fudgy Chocolate Chip Bars will definitely scratch that chocolate itch! Think I need to join this fab baking club. (But, yikes…I’ve already gained a few pounds since launching my blog, LOL!) Pinning! xo

  8. says

    I am right there with you, flying the flag for the chocolate addicts! These would satiate my everyday chocolate cravings, I love it. And also super jealous of Laura for getting the leftovers!

  9. Laura says

    These were delicious!! My younger daughter Sammy especially has been absolutely obsessed with them!

  10. Joan@Chocolate and More says

    OMG! How did I miss these bars? And you know because I’m such a chocoholic that I have all the supplies and can make these today!

  11. says

    Beautiful chocolate chip bar cookies- I know chocolate can be so addictive especially when the chocolate looks like your cookies! I can’t believe there is a cook book on chocolate I don’t have, lol 😉

  12. says

    What… how that cookbook even got published!? 😀 Well, I’m a big chocolate fan too. Imagine the time I made/baked something with chocolate – it’s rare occasion in my house so 2 kids and I are trying to get a last piece! I tend to eat extra and become out of control. These chocolate chip bars will disappear in less than 2 hours!

    I am so impressed with this website. I couldn’t be more proud of Roxana. She is an amazing mother, cook, baker, chef, and dear sweet friend. I begin to drool
    at the sight of her beautiful photos, and have been privileged to indulge in her
    fantastic desserts. What a talent!!!!. We should all treat ourselves to something
    wonderful that she has created, and be spoiled by the incredible flavors. Love
    that girl.

  14. says

    lol! The book for no-bake cookies that calls for preheating the oven – I think I have it too! 😀

    These bars look delicious, I’d eat the entire pan!!

  15. WENDY says

    Very rich but heavenly. Much like a fudgey brownies. These would be great with the addition of nuts as well. Makes about 30 bars (6 rows of 5 bars each). These are very rich so you don’t want to cut them too big. Thanks for sharing!
