SRC: Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars


It's the fourth Monday of the month which means that it's Secret Recipe Club Group D Reveal day! I love the Secret Recipe Club and look forward to reveal day every month. The concept is simple each blog is assigned another blog in secret and the idea is that you choose a recipe to make from your secret blog and reveal it on the same day.

My assignment this month is I am a Honey Bee written by Nicole or Nic as she is better known from Boston. You can read more about her here including 28 random things about her! Her blog is about cooking, crafts and life in general. There is a mixure of recipes, craft projects, dining out, family updates and more. It's definitely worth a read. 

As usual, I had difficulty choosing just one recipe as there were so many I wanted to make. However, this chocolate chip cookie bar caught my eye. I love chocolate chip cookies and this looked like a better version. Plus I wanted to try out my individual brownie pan which I've had for ages but have never used until now. I couldn't find any colourful chocolate chips here so I used a mixture of dark, milk and white chocolate chips and some coloured confetti sprinkles. I brought them to work for an event and they were very well received. The bars were crispy and you could definitely taste the different chocolate chips. The confetti added a fun burst of colour and they were all eaten within a short space of time.

Recipe adapted very slightly from I am a Honey Bee 

280g plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
226g butter
165g caster sugar
150g brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
100g dark chocolate chips
100g milk chocolate chips
100g white chocolate chips
1 x box of coloured confetti sprinkles

  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Cream the butter and sugars until pale and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. 
  • Add in the vanilla extract.
  • Beat in the flour and bicarbonate of soda.
  • Finally stir in the chocolate chips and confetti sprinkles.
  • Divide evenly into a greased individual brownie tin (or you can use a square tin) and bake for approximately 20 - 25 minutes until golden brown.
