Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Bars

Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Bars

Sometimes the simplest recipes reap the greatest rewards. As many of you know, the hubby requests chocolate chip cookies or bars nearly every week. Mr. Predictable has even learned to bake up a batch of “chippy bars” when he’s desperate. As a food blogger, I’m always hunting for new, innovative desserts to try…but my better half would be quite content with the same old Nestles Tollhouse cookies day after day. I knew my sweet blogger friend, Danielle, had a plethora of decadent chocolate chip cookies and bars on her blog, Hugs and Cookies XOXO…and it was nearly time for our recipe swap. Once a month, I bake up a recipe from her site, and she from mine. These Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Bars were another winner!

Ingredients

  • Recipe adapted from Hugs & Cookies XOXO
  • 2 sticks butter, browned, then cooled to room temperature
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2½ cups flour
