Congo Bars

This is the perfect fix for any sweet cravings. If you’re a fan of chocolate chip cookies and brownies, this recipe combines them both superbly. Simple to make, this is a great treat and crowd pleaser, especially if you add a scoop of ice cream on top while it’s still warm.

*NB. If you have a smaller tray you may need to allow for a longer time to bake as it will be a thicker dough.
