Congo Bars


(these were made with half milk chocolate chips and half white chocolate chips to keep my daughter happy)

This recipe came from my mom.  I have always loved my mom's congo bars.  I always thought "congo bars" was kind of a weird name--I have no idea where that name even came from!  I can't bring myself to call them "blondies" though, because congo bars is just what they are!  They are gooey, chewy, and super yummy with a scoop of ice cream!

I loved the mix of white chocolate and milk chocolate chips. We devoured them! I can't wait to make them. Thanks for sharing!
