Bongo Bars

I am so thankful for AC right now because North Carolina has been 105 the last few days.  And the humidity has been killer!  We had a couple of our friends over and everyone was feeling like a treat.  So I asked one of the guys what his favorite treat was and he said Bongo Bars!  I had never heard of them but he said they are a favorite in his family and I had to make them.  It is like a chocolate chip cookie brownie.bongobars4finalThey are so simple and easy to make.  I loved how they were ready to be put in the oven in 10 minutes.  Right out of the oven they are chewy, gooey, and absolutely amazing!  Of course they are definitely better served with a scoop of icecream. 🙂
