Congo Bars Recipe

We are big cookie people around here but I don’t always have the patience to make a big batch of cookies. These Congo Bars are so easy to make and taste just as (or more) delicious as homemade chocolate chip cookies!

  1. Oh my goodness! These looked so good and so easy that I just had to make them. They just came out of the oven and we are waiting to try them. I'm blogging about them too. I just love your website! It's my new go-to place for something new! Thank you!

  2. I saw your recipe and saved the link on my computer as a must try! And I am so glad I did, they are so good they are addicting. I changed the pecans to walnuts, but here is my post about them.

    I am super excited to try these, I have decided to give up on chocolate chip cookies and try making them into bar, I can make breads, and cakes and other good items, but I just can't get the chocolate chip cookies right, I hope this works!

    I just made the conga bars, however I just dropped them by tablespoons onto my cookie sheets and they turned out fabulous as a cookie...thank you for sharing this recipe -- now I have a new cookie recipe to send with my daughter on Saturday's for her EMT training..
  5. I made these yesterday. They came out delicious. I did adjust a few things just for personal taste and to be creative. I used macadamia nuts because I don't like pecans. I also added some white chocolate chips and heath toffee bits, only because I had partial bags open and decided to get creative. My husband told me "save this recipe, it's a winner!" That's high praise from him!
