This recipe was crazy easy and required NO OVEN! I wish I’d found this in college, but it was equally rewarding to whip these up in the microwave of my apartment.

I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

 

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, divided

Directions:

In a bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Add egg, milk and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Spread into a greased 8-in. square microwave-safe dish. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 3-1/2 minutes or until bars test done, rotating a quarter turn every minute. Cool before cutting.
