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

"My family loved these! We always have a large group so I doubled the recipe and baked it in a large cookie sheet/jellyroll pan . I baked it an extra 8-9 minutes longer than the recipe called for because of the doubling in size . Great recipe - reminds me of my grandma's Congo bar recipe as a child."

"From 10//11/16: This recipe definitely does not make 36 bars. It makes 18. Also, this recipe is a mess. Not only is there not enough batter for a 9x13 pan, the sugar should never be equal to flour. The only thing in the recipe that should be 100% is the flour. As a baker who attended Culinary School for baking and pastries specifically, this recipe actually pains me. I'm not even sure how long they will take but I started at 10 minutes because I didn't want to risk them burning since I had to use a smaller pan. They are currently in the oven so I will update my review with how they turned out and how they taste, but I will not be using this recipe again. Would not recommend.

Update on 10/12/16: They tasted alright but, because the recipe is so out of sorts, they did not have typical blondie texture and they bake unevenly - the outside is done but the inside isn't, even though when I tested it, the skewer came out clean. Lucky for me, I used applesauce as an egg replacement so I don't have to worry about getting salmonella. And I actually baked them for 25 minutes. Sorry, but this recipe is a miss."

"My husband snitched one - even before they were cool. OMGosh, are these good. They are just like decadent chocolate chip cookies and so easy to make. I will be making these again and again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."

"I made these twice and they turned out great both times. Please don't give a recipe a bad rating if you don't use the size baking pan specified in the recipe."

"I made these and they turned out okay. Definitely not enough batter for a 9x13 pan. They don't taste too bad but way to much sugar. I cut mine super small. Would have preferred chocolate chip cookies."

"I made these the other day because I was short on time and I didn't want to dirty a lot of pans by making cookies. These were so simple. I melted some chocolate chips with a dab of shortening and drizzled that on top to jazz them up a bit. My hubby liked them so much, he asked me to make a pan for him to take to the office he likes the name Blondies too, I think ??"

"Made this in a 9 x 9 pan. Baked for 30 minutes. Sides were done but center was gooey. Flavor: none. Only flavors come from excessive sugar and greasy butter. Will never make this recipe again! Unless you like raw cookie dough, don't bother with this one."

"Followed the recipe to the t.....after about 30 minutes, I had to pull them out of the oven due to the sides getting done while the center was still not finished baking. The flavor is great, even if they are a little gooey. They are not as cakey-looking as the pictured blondies."

"I made these today and they were good. I added a tablespoon of cornstarch to give them a chewy texture. I also read a review that they were a little bland, so I added 1/4 cup of white sugar and extra 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. I didn't have enough chocolate chips, so I used 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup cinnamon chips. My family really liked the blondies and thought it was a nice alternative to the brownies I normally make."

"omg. these are the best thing EVER. i'm pregnant and wanted brownies but had no cocoa powder so this was the next best thing. and let me tell you i may never make another brownie ever. I'm making my second batch right now but with less chocolate chips this time. more like 1/2-3/4 a cup sprinkled on top instead of mixed into the batter. all the chips sank to the bottom the first time. lol. still delicious just not as pretty. nom nom nom."
