Congo Bars

My life has been really crazy this week and I needed something quick and easy to throw together for a cookout on Saturday and these bars were the first thing that popped into my mind. Everyone loved them, and are made with ingredients that you should already have on hand.

Congo Bars:

1 3/4 stick butter or margarine, melted
2 cups brown sugar
3 eggs
2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 (12 oz) pkg of semi sweet chocolate chips

Cream together the melted butter and brown sugar. Add eggs 1 at a time and mix for 2 minutes. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Beat well. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into a greased 9X13 inch baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Let cool completely and cut into squares.

I just made something similar to these last week - and they are all gone! They were really good, and in fact, I should make more to pack in the lunches for this week!
