Chocolate Topped Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars Recipe

This an adaptation of the usual recipe for my chocolate chip cookie bars, however, I also went one better. I topped the warm bars with extra chocolate chips for an added layer of delicious semi sweet chocolate.

2 1/4 cups flour
1 t baking soda
pinch salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 t vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 (12 oz) package semi sweet chocolate chips plus about 1/2 cup extra for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 375°. Spray a 13x9" baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer (which makes the job easier), beat butter and sugars til creamy. Beat in eggs.

Gradually beat flour mixture into butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.

Spread mixture into prepared pan (I used moistened finger. It makes this part easier too). Bake 25-27 minutes or til golden brown. Sprinkle warm bars with remaining chocolate chips. Spread over the top with a small spatula.

Cool and slice.

I couldn't decide which way I liked better:
