Easy Chocolate Chip Walnut Bars
I crave sweets and I always bake something each week for the family. These Chocolate Chip Walnut Bars always hit the spot. They’re so easy to make and everyone loves them. I’ll bake a batch for a pot luck or serve them at summer BBQ’s. They’ve got a distinct chew texture with the crunch of walnut, plus the perfect amount of melted chocolate goodness!

What To Serve With These Bars
There’s nothing better than a chocolate chewy dessert with a cold glass of milk or ice cream. If you’re making a dessert tray or table, consider adding a couple of extra bar recipes to serve an assortment. You could always pair these with a lighter option as well since they tend to me on the heaver side.
Want to make the recipe before your event? You can freeze the dough for up to three months and bake whenever you have company coming!
If you have leftover Chewy Chocolate Chip Walnut Bars, store them in an air-tight container. They don’t have any preservatives in them, so they won’t last long. You can save them for about 6 days. The bars shouldn’t harden, but if they do, add a slice of white bread into the storage container. They’ll soften again!
