Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars with Caramel Frosting

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

 Good morning everyone! We’re halfway through the week! Woohoo!! Sorry I’ve been a slacker on posting new recipes but I promise I’ll get back to posting regularly and posting step by step photos! I’ve been working an extra day a week for the last couple months which hasn’t left me as much time I’d like for experimenting with new recipes and blogging.  I’m so excited to finally have my normal schedule back next week! 

I was CRAVING something sweet the other night and started rummaging through my pantry to see what I had to make.  I had some white and milk chocolate chips leftover but wanted something different than a cookie so this is what I came up with!

DSC_1376I am so happy with how they turned out.  I wanted something a little more cake like and that’s what I got! They are super rich with the frosting so completely satisfied my craving for something sweet! You can really use whatever kind of chocolate chips you like or have on hand.
