August gave us a few more hot days. It’s great to find recipes that allow me to bake without heating up the house. Slow Cooker Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars is one of those recipes.
The family, including my mom, enjoyed the fresh baked cookie bars quite a bit. I find that one of the downsides to a good slow cooker dessert is that the family thinks that I should make them all of the time. This also includes my mom.
Slow Cooker Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars also has a tendency to get dry on the edges if overcooked. Turn them off or down before they dry out.
This recipe is also delicious topped with vanilla (or any flavor) ice cream!
