  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together 1/3 cup butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Stir in 1 cup of flour until well blended. Press the dough into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven; remove and set aside. In a medium bowl, mix eggs and vanilla. Combine 1 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, baking powder and salt so there are no lumps. Stir the sugar mixture into the eggs. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spread over the pre-baked crust.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Cool and drizzle with chocolate glaze.
  5. To make the glaze: In a small saucepan over medium heat, mix together the cocoa, 4 teaspoons butter, and boiling water. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until thick and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the confectioners' sugar. Drizzle over cooled bars before cutting into squares.

My husband loved these so much that he ate them for breakfast ! Instead of using a 9x13pan, I used a 8x8, without changing the recipe ! It still turned out great ! I omitted the chocolate glaze,...

Used light margarine, and had good results. Skipped the frosting directions, and just sprinkled choc. chips on top as they came out of oven. Simplified the recipe... I'll make again.

These are amazing!!! Simple preperation & a hit with the crowd. My son needed to take bars for a sports potluck and they were gone by the time the pan hit the table...Coaches have already said ...

Gooey goodness! I substituted a peanut butter glaze for the chocolate one and it was great.

These bars were super easy and very yummy! Not at all too sweet for my family. We thought they were a really great treat for the calories (only 170 each if cut into 24). I did add 5 minutes t...

I added baking time to get these to set. After cooling and cutting, the bars began to 'weep' in places which turned people off. Flavor was good, although very sweet, but I don't think I'll mak...

This was much faster than making cookies and tasted delicious. Next time I will cooke the bottom layer for 1-2 extra minutes to make it a little firmer.

This didn't seem to have enough crust mixture for a 9x13" pan, so I baked in in an 8x11". These bars turn out very soft and gooey. I also skipped the glaze, but I did sprinkle a few chocolate ...
