chocolate cookie bars with white chips

i’ve been baking and shipping cookies to cornell for the past few weeks, and i’ve been trying to mix up the cookie types i send so that laura and her friends don’t get bored to tears with my cookies! i have found that the bar cookies ship the best (read: get there intact!) and they also seem to stay fresher longer, so i thought i’d start dusting off some of my older recipes that fit the bill.

these chocolate cookie bars certainly meet the criteria. bar cookies, so they are quick and easy to bake, and they’ll get there still looking like bar cookies! and they look terrific with their speckled white chips throughout. kinda like brownies with dots!

i use deep dark baking cocoa for these, but you can use any type of baking cocoa that you like.
