  • Pat’s Chocolate Chip Bars
  • 8 oz 230 grams regular salted butter
  • 1 1/4 cup 290 grams granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon 15 ml of pure vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups 440 grams/16 ounces all purpose flour (Spoon and level)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon 7 ml baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 ml (optional)
  • 2 12 oz packages (670 grams) of semi-sweet chocolate chips (don’t cut back)
  • 2 cups 220 grams chopped pecans (optional)


  • Cream the butter and sugars, beat in the eggs and vanilla.. Combine the dry ingredients and blend in. Add chips and nuts. Spread in a greased 15x 10 inch baking pan. Bake at 350F (176 C) for 15-20 minutes. Cool and cut into bars. (Anna's Note -- My half batch took about 20 minutes, Janet's full batch took 30, so watch the bars and check at 20 minutes.


Pat’s Note:
have had this recipe for over 35 years, and have no clue as to where it came from. You can also do the drop way, but I am so lazy, this works better for me. When I shipped them, I lined a trash bag box with foil (heavy duty) and then wrapped the box in foil again. . They stacked nicely
