  1. Hi…
    Made these, and wonder if this size pan was right?
    They are awfully thick! I cut them in smaller bars because with all those chocolate chips, they were really rich!
    Next time I make them, I will bake them in a larger pan to make them somewhat thinner, and only put in 1 cup of chip-In think 2 cups is way too much and too sweet! Seems like that’s all you’re eating is the chips!
