Tuxedo Cookie Bars

This recipe comes from the “Mrs Fields Cookie Book” cookbook.  I got 2 Mrs Fields cookbooks off of http://www.paperbackswap.com which is an awesome book swapping website.  I haven’t bought a new book in a very long time.  You post books that you’d like to swap and then find books that you’d like from other people and request them.  You only pay the cost of shipping a book to another member which is usually between $2 – $3 and earn a credit to request whatever book you’d like.  Give it a look!  If you’re a reader like I am, it’s a wonderful site.  And I love cookbooks too so it saves me money on those too.  These treats were for my Sunday School class but they didn’t eat them all so now I must get them out of my house!  Too tempting!

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup salted butter

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 cups (18 oz) semisweet chocolate chips

1 tablespoon vanilla

4 tablespoons hot water

4 eggs

1 cup (6 oz) white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325.  Grease 9 x 13″ pan.  In a medium bowl combine flour and soda with a wire whisk.  In a small saucepan melt butter and 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth.  In a large mixing bowl at medium speed, beat chocolate mixture and sugar until smooth, about 5 minutes.  Continuing to beat, add vanilla, then water, 1 tablespoon at a time.  Scrape down sides of bowl.  Next, add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.  Gradually add flour mixture, blending at low speed.  Then add remaining 1 cup of semisweet chips and white chocolate chips.  Blend until equally distributed throughout batter.  Spread batter into prepared pan.  Bake 35 – 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out just slightly moist.  Cool to room temperature.  Cover well and refrigerate until cold before cutting into bars.
