Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Fudgy Chocolate Cookie Bars

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is FUDGY CHOCOLATE COOKIE BARS!!

If there’s one thing I’ll heat up my kitchen with during the summer months, it’s the occasional cookie baking day.  Make those chocolate cookies, and quickie-to-make bars, and I’m so there.  These are delicious and fudgy, and you probably need to make a double batch.  Your family will love you and, maybe, just maybe, they’ll run off with the cookies and allow you an afternoon of reading!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
