Nestle Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Nestle Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Serves about 24.

There's no replacement for classic chocolate chip cookies, but the chocolate chip cookie bar is amazing in its own way.  Plus, it's easier and faster than baking dozens of cookies and will still please a crowd.  Don't overbake for that perfect, slightly-undercooked gooey center.
