Chocolate Chips Bars

Knowing my passion for good family recipes, Colette Leclerc from Saint-Irénée in Quebec  kindly shared her recipe during a meeting at the Cercle des Fermières. These Bars are so popular with her family that she has often made them twice in the same week.

They are tender and mellow with a subtle taste of caramel. It is the ideal dessert to share when meeting with friends or adding to lunch boxes. I’m pretty sure you too are going to want to share this recipe when you’ve tried it.

The first time I tried Colette’s recipe I didn’t pay attention to the size of the pan and made them in a 9 “x 13” pan rather than a 10 “x 15” pan. They are delicious cooked in both sizes but I admit I have a preference for the smaller mold like the one used in this recipe. If you decide to cook them in the larger size, the cooking time will have to be reduced by 2 to 3 minutes.

When I prepare desserts containing oil, I prefer sunflower oil, but any neutral vegetable oil is fine too.
