  • 9x13 pan
  • stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment


  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 ½ cups light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 ¼ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts


  • Preheat your oven to 350℉ and spray a 9x13 pan with baking spray. Set the pan aside.
  • Add the butter and light brown sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat with the paddle attachment until it is light and fluffy. You can also use a large bowl and electric mixer. Remember to scrape down the sides of the bowl so that all of the butter is blended in well.
    1 cup unsalted butter, 1 ½ cups light brown sugar
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
    2 eggs
  • Mix in the vanilla.
    1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix slowly as the batter will be very thick. Sometimes I use my hands at the end to make sure everything is really well blended and the batter is smooth.
    2 ¼ cup flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, ¾ teaspoon salt
  • Mix in 1 ½ cups of the chocolate chips and nuts, stirring them in slowly.
    2 cups chocolate chips, 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • Dump the cookie dough into the greased pan and use your hands to press it into the pan, making and even layer.
  • Sprinkle the remaining ½ cup of chocolate chips over the top of the top of the dough in the pan then gently press the chips into the dough.
  • Bake the bars for about 22-25 minutes. The top of the cookie bars and the edges will be golden brown but the bars will still be a little soft to the touch (this is good!).
  • Let the cookie bars cool to room temperature then cut and enjoy!


  • Skip the walnuts and use 3 cups of chocolate chips  for a nut-free cookie bar
  • Use chocolate chunks in place of chocolate chips for a classic Toll House cookie bar
