Coffee House Vonnie’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars is a decadent cookie that’s quick to fix, super easy to make. And… chewy, buttery, deliciously chocolatey and incredibly delicious.

And this one is so easy, there is no need to break out the mixer. Melted butter makes for quick work with this dough.

Coffee Shop Treat

What are Vonnie’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars?

The inspiration? A coffee shop, of course! I came across this delicious looking treat at Well & Good Coffee House near Portland, Oregon. Great coffee and a beautiful, cozy place to spend time. I don’t know why they’re called Vonnie’s… but they are super good. I had to make my own version at home after that visit.

Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? Honestly, in my family, there isn’t one person! These are quicker and easier, but just as delicious. Then, a bit more decadent when melted chocolate is drizzled over the top. It’s that little bit of extra that makes them such a treat.

Cut into bars or squares — they make perfect snacks, picnic take alongs, lunch treats… or simply to enjoy with a cup of coffee.

And children? They’re almost irresistible. (Both the children and the cookies!) As quickly as they’re cut… they disappear.

Scale

Ingredients

21/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
12 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips plus more for melting

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper or foil for easy removal and cutting. If you’re using foil, be sure to lightly spray it with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking soda. In a separate bowl, melt the butter and stir in the brown sugar and granulated sugar. Once mixed, add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla to the mixture; stir until smooth. Gradually stir in the flour mixture and the 2 cups of chocolate chips. Once the batter is fully incorporated, meaning no dry flour streaks, spread the dough into the prepared baking pan.

Bake the cookies for 20 to 25 minutes. Don’t overcook these cookie bars. You want them set but not hard. Once cool, melt about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Then drizzle the melted chocolate over the uncut bars. When the chocolate has hardened, I like to refrigerate for about 5 minutes until set, then cut into bars or squares.
