Congo Bars Recipe

I spent a rainy, cool summer afternoon watching one of my favorite shows (on dvd) Last of the Summer Wine and having a Congo Bar made from my grandmother's recipe with a nice hot mug of coffee.  An easy, quick recipe to make and enjoy.

Congo Bars

2  1/4 cups flour
2  1/2 tsps baking powder
1/2  tsp salt
2/3 cup melted butter
2  1/2 cups brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 pkg chocolate chips

Set oven to 350*.  Melt butter and add brown sugar.  Add 1 egg at a time and beat well.  Add vanilla and dry ingredients.  Stir in chips.  Pour into large cookie sheet and bake 20 minutes.  Let cool and cut into squares.  

I used a 9 X 13 inch pan and baked for 40 minutes as they were much thicker.

Not sure if I've ever made these, but the name is so famous. Thanks. I'll save the recipe. They sound delish!
