Folks who love chocolate chip cookies will enjoy that same great flavor in these golden bars. They can be mixed up in a jiffy, taste wonderful, and are perfect for occasions when company drops by unexpectedly or you need a treat in a hurry. —Rhonda Knight, Hecker, Illinois

"These turned out just okay. They were nothing great. They could have used more chocolate chips. They also do not make anywhere near 36 bars. The most I could get out of it was 16 bars and I think 12 would have been more reasonable. If you are gonna make something for someone don't be stingy, give them more than a little taste!"

"Pretty good chocolate chip cookie blondie. Got more than the 36 servings out of mine so I don't know how big people are cutting their pieces. I threw some chopped up dark chocolate into mine as well we as the chocolate chips and it was delicious."

"These came out well and they fit the bill for a late-night sugar craving: fast, easy, and sweet. I actually disagree with the reviewers who say 36 servings is ridiculous-- these are very sweet and rich, and I think smaller squares are perfectly reasonable for this recipe. That way, people can have what they like-- a taste of something very chocolatey and sweet (one small square), or...more...of something very chocolatey and sweet (fill 'er up). I give 5 stars because these came out how they were supposed to. They're blondies! Not the most interesting dessert, just an easy, chewy, sweet bar. Adding nuts (pecans, macadamia, walnuts) might introduce some interest and temper the sweetness."

"Delicious ,easy and great for snacks! Would be very easy to adjust to make various kinds. I think peanut butter chips or a mixture of peanut butter and chocolate chips would be wonderful!"

"My issue with this is that the recommended serving size is absurd. 36 servings?? For a 9x13 pan?? That doesn't make blondies, it makes blondie bites. In my opinion, the smallest reasonable size you can divide the cake into is 15 bars.

I made some adjustments to the recipe to make it healthier (apple sauce instead of butter, less brown sugar, added banana), and the bars are very good, highly addictive...but they are still about 190 calories each. To make them 102 calories would require the "bars" to be ridiculously small, which doesn't really make it a worthwhile desert for anyone who monitors their nutrition and calorie intake. I can make a batch of muffins twice the size for half the calories. So that was a bit frustrating. That said, the results were surprisingly good and I'll definitely make them again. But I'll try to fiddle with the recipe some more...maybe cut down the brown sugar by another 1/2 cup and reduce the chocolate chips by half as well. I guess I'm just frustrated because I assumed the recommended serving size would be more reasonable and wasn't prepared for a batch of such high cal deserts."
