Chocolate Chip Walnut Bars

Chocolate Chip Walnut Bars

 Walnuts are something I have come to love and are the perfect complement to the chocolate chips in these bars.   These bars are moist and almost cake like and super delicious.  A really quick and simple dessert perfect for anytime.   These would make an excellent thank you gift and great to pack in lunch boxes or carry to potlucks.  Whenever you decide to have them you’ll  love ’em, we sure did!
