A 40+ year old family recipe. Chewy chocolate chip squares perfect for lunchboxes & after school snacks. An ideal recipe for cookie swaps & for the freezer.
These cookie square recipe is one of my mom’s recipes from many years back. She makes them with a chocolate frosting but I like to melt extra chocolate chips over the top. My kids love these.
It is a very fast and easy recipe too. I’ve made these without the coconut and even sometimes added toffee chips as well. These also freeze beautifully.
