I think this is a great recipe - my family loves these bars, too. I would give it 5 stars, except I did make a couple changes. Instead of shortening, I always use real butter in this recipe. Also, I put in 3/4 cup white sugar and 3/4 cup packed brown sugar (recipe calls for 1 1/2 cup brown sugar only). My family prefers milk chocolate chips rather than semi-sweet. Give it try!

Jan.'07: Just tried this recipe because of seeing 46 mostly-good reviews. They taste really good - and, yes, more cake-like but still delicious. Because of the wonderful comments from so many, I did change the recipe slightly. I reduced the baking powder and soda to 3/4 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda. I used all butter (2 sticks) and used half white/half brown sugar. I reduced the milk to 1 Tbsp. Also, I baked these 35 minutes because of suggestions from other reviewers. THANKS reviewers!

I thought I did something wrong when I first tasted this recipe but upon double checking, I realized this recipe is just not good. The shortening causes the bars to be greasy and there's way too much flour and not enough choco chips. I had to trash this dish and start over with a new recipe. From now on, only real butter for me. Shortening just isn't right for this dish!
