The infamous cookie bars! Anyone who knows me in the flesh has probably experienced these at some point! They are probably my most-requested treat, in fact. So much so that I got to the point where I hated making them. After a months-long break, though, they are back in full force!
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 heaping cup or handful mini marshmallows
Preheat the oven to 375F. Combine the softened butter, vanilla, sugar and brown sugar. Once good and mixed, add each egg one at a time. Next up is the salt, baking soda and flour, which you can combine in a separate bowl first if you want, or you can just do it all in the mix, which is what I do. After that, I usually hand mix in the chips and marshmallows.
For this you'll need a 13 x 9 inch pan, lightly greased. I recommend glass pyrex, but you can use metal if that's all you've got. Bake in the oven for roughly 20-22 minutes.
You'll notice it is very close to the Nestle recipe for chocolate chip cookies, and that's because it's a simple variation with the butterscotch chips and the secret mini marshmallow ingredient that makes them all delicious and stuff. I don't have photos of this one in progress, because these photos are kind of old and done before I started this blog and got more into the photo-taking side of things.
This is what it should look like when you pull it out of the oven.
You'll notice it has "deflated" here after sitting out for a while, maybe 5 to 10 minutes. Now it's ready to be cut up and devoured!
So gooey and messy and, you guessed it, delicious. Also, as a note, they always turn out best when you use fresh mini marshmallows versus ones that have been around for a while, but they're good either way.
