Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Well I'm sure you all can tell by this picture that this recipe is a keeper. Not only are these bars easy to throw together for a crowd, but they are absolutely amazing. A thick, soft chocolate chip cookie in bar form. What can be better than that?
I whipped these up when we got together with some friends a few weeks back and we ended up taking our fair share back home with us, which was the best thing ever. ;)
Pressing them down onto tinfoil makes for easy clean up and also easy pan removal. 
I seriously can't wait to make these again and I will probably have to wait for another special occasion or I could easily eat the entire pan myself.
I mean, how could you resist all that chocolatey goodness?

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Slightly Adapted from Our Best Bites
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. table salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
3/4 cups white sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×13-inch baking dish with foil and lightly spray the bottom with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
3. In a mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, white sugar, and melted butter. Add eggs, one at a time, stirring between each addition, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients a little at a time until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips (save a few for the top if desired). Once dough is thoroughly mixed, press into the prepared baking pan.
4. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven when edges are golden brown and center appears set, but still soft. Cool completely to room temperature and then cut into squares.
