Sheet Pan Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

All the flavor you love from our chocolate chip cookies - made in one single batch. No scooping or rolling required. Perfectly thick, chewy, chocolatey cookie bars made to feed a crowd.

My family loves making chocolate chip cookies every Sunday (this recipe is our favorite), but I was just not feeling it this week.  Mostly because I was sick of doing dishes and the thought of hanging out in the kitchen half the day putting more batches of cookies in the oven did not sound fun.

Does anyone else feel like they spend half of their Sunday in the kitchen cooking and doing dishes?!

Then it hit me….why don’t I make one batch of cookies, spread it out in a sheet pan and call it good? Forget waiting every 8-10 minutes for the cookies to bake and then repeat over and over again. Not today!

I was a little nervous about the texture of the bars because I was wanting them to be on the chewy side. I upped the brown sugar in this recipe to make them the perfect consistency. A little crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside.

Another thing I loved about these bars is that they are perfect for feeding a crowd. Did I mention they are even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top with a drizzle of chocolate sauce? Because they totally are.

I set some of the chocolate chip cookie bars aside to eat during the week, and I will tell ya, they were even better the next day It’s almost like they got even softer and more flavorful.

The next time your kids come begging for some chocolate chip cookies, whip these bars up in a matter of minutes and thank me later.

To all the other people spending their afternoons baking cookies instead of catching up on last week’s Bachelor episode….these are for you.

    • This recipe is for a sheet pan. If you are using a 9 x 13 inch pan, your dough will be thicker in depth since the pan is smaller. It will need to cook longer. A lot of our bar recipes for 9 x 13 inch pans cook for about 30 minutes.
    • We cooked this recipe in a 13x18 inch pan. If you use a smaller pan your batter would be a lot thicker, which would need more cooking time so it would cook all the way through. So you would have to watch it closely if you change the pan size. You will want to cover them if you do not cut them or eat them for a few days after making. You might want to bake them and then let cool. Cut into pieces and freeze in a freezer container until ready to thaw and eat.
  1. I’m so disappointed! These did not turn out as there are too many chocolate chips! They all melted together in the middle so the cookie to chocolate ratio is off. Are you sure 2 1/4cups is accurate? I ask because it took more than a regular 10oz bag to make as directed. Don’t want anyone else to make the same mistake!
  2. Hello, my little girl loves to decorate sugar cookies, but she doesn’t like how they taste. Would this work if I use cookie cutters after it’s baked instead of cutting into squares? I’ve made several of your other recipes, and I haven’t been disappointed yet. Thanks in advance!
