These are the best chocolate chip cookie bars in the world! I recently went to a computer training class and this young mother brought two large cookie sheets filled with these yummy chocolate chip bars.

They were cut into 2-inch squares and placed on a plate to pass around with some napkins. Can you picture how a plate is being passed around the room to share a treat for the night?

As the plate went around the room all of a sudden people started asking for seconds and thirds. First of all, anything that is homemade is obviously awesome! Well, this recipe is a moist chewy cookie bar. Okay, I had to have this recipe!!

One of the instructors asked if he could take some cookies home to his wife. He picked up six of these and put them in his pocket (no napkin). You have to know this sweet gentleman.

I am sure he and his wife don’t make homemade goodies at their home. I think he is in his late 70’s. It was a precious moment to see. I know he and his wife will love those cookies for a few days.

Here is the batter that is basically cookie dough. The thing I like about this recipe is the fact that the ingredients are in my pantry. I don’t usually store instant pudding, except for the chocolate cake I make.

I will for sure start buying a few small boxes of instant pudding in the future. I love having a recipe I can make from scratch and not have to go to the store if I need to make a dessert at the last minute. Mental note, buy some small boxes of instant pudding for the pantry.

This is a little tricky because the dough is really thick. You can use your hands to spread it out, or a spatula. I used my hands because it is a very stiff dough. I just pushed the dough into corners and smoothed it out flat. Easy peasy.
