In My Kitchen: Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

I’m not a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies, but my husband is. I am, however, a huge fan of bars and blondies. This excellent recipe combines the best of both worlds – a chocolate chip cookie with the texture of a blondie. Consider this my new go-to dessert recipe!

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, plus more to grease the pan
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 oz chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp flaked sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 13×9 inch baking dish and set aide.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Simmer until the milk solids rise to the top, then gently sink as they caramelize. The butter will be browned and smell nutty.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the sugars and stir in the browned butter. Stir in the eggs and vanilla, then the flour, baking soda and sea salt, mixing until well combined.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Pour batter into baking dish, pressing in with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle evenly with the flaky sea salt.
  6. Bake until the edges are golden brown and the middle is set, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let bars cool completely before serving.
