Baileys Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bars

Baileys Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bars

I baked these for my lovely neighbors.  There are five units in our little cluster, including us.  So really, I’m baking for four households (~1-2 person household).  I have to say, I’m pretty lucky to have friendly and easygoing neighbors.  We are a tight-knit bunch and we all look out for each other.  I am the foster Mommy to Cairo, Ashes and Marbles (not pictured here) when my neighbors (their parents) are out of town.  Isn’t he cute?

Kahlua Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Kahlua Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Today is National Kahlua Day.  And in honor of that, I made these Kahlua Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.  If you are a Kahlua fan,  then you’ll love these! When I made them this morning, I couldn’t stop licking the batter. 😀  You can definitely taste the Kahlua flavor in this and the dark chocolate is nice complement to this cookie bar.  If you don’t have Kahlua or don’t want to add it to your batter, you can always add some coffee granules to this with some rum or vanilla extract.  But really, why bother? Go all out and add the Kahlua.  You’ll be glad you did.  Bake some today and enjoy them with family, friends, or neighbors.  They’ll thank you for it.
