How to Make Large Batch Cookie Bars
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare your baking pan. If you have a large foil pan, spray with cooking spray and line with parchment, otherwise a baking sheet works as well.
Next, in a large bowl, combine softened butter and brown sugar and beat with a hand mixer until creamy. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix to combine. In the same bowl, add the flour, baking powder, and salt and mix to combine. Fold in the two bags of chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and press down evenly using a rubber spatula or (my favorite) damp hands.
Bake on the middle rack for 25-30 minutes until lightly golden.
Next, let the cookies cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Then lift out the cookies using the parchment and let cool completely before cutting into squares.
This recipe easily makes 40 large cookie bars or 80 if you are cutting them smaller.
So save time and money and make these tasty Large Batch Cookie Bars for your next get together!
