Chocolate Chip Dream Bars Recipe

T'is the season to be jolly... Fa la la la... La la la...

I've been remiss. I did say that I was going to outline the recipes that I used for when our friends came over for dinner. But, I think I'll save that for next time. This time, I'll treat you with the recipe that I found from my calendar. I think it's by Betty Crocker. I could be wrong.

This is the recipe for Chocolate Chip Dream Bars... It is very yummy and I think perfect for the season. Very easy to make and I'm sure a lot of people will enjoy it. Since you break them into bars, you can even package them and give them out as presents for Christmas or for any other season. The very first time I made them, it was a huge success. And, I try not to make them all the time, so that my friends and family don't get bored with it and won't eat it anymore the next time around.

But, here it is:

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Also, the brown sugar I used for this recipe was light brown sugar. You can use dark brown sugar as well, which is what I did for New Years Eve party at my parents house. I was told by the hubby, who tried it both ways, that the texture for when the light brown sugar was used was more cookie-like, while the dark brown sugar was more brownie-like.

Feel free to give your own spin on these bars.
