Lunch Lady Bars

Show of hands: how many of you are now singing the Adam Sandler song? I know I am (I love me some Adam Sandler).

Anyway, these bars are so incredibly good. They are easy to whip up and require basic ingredients that I pretty much always have on hand. Whenever one of us has a sudden sweet or chocolate craving I can turn to these and be assured that they'll be ready to eat before we cave and give in to the awfulness that is a store-bought cookie.

These would also be a great treat to take to a party - especially a cookout on Memorial Day or the Fourth of July. They're a classic that everyone is pretty much guaranteed to love.

Lunch Lady Bars
From Yum

2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
3/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Oil (I use vegetable)
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Combine all dry ingredients and set aside.
Mix together oil and sugars and add eggs one at a time.
Add vanilla and then gradually add dry ingredients.
Mix in 3/4 cup of chocolate chips.
Spread the mixture into a 9x13 that has been lightly sprayed with non-stick spray.
Sprinkle the rest of the chips on top and lightly push them in.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-25 minutes or until light golden brown.
Allow to cool and cut into small squares.
