Festive soft gingersnap flavors meet chewy chocolate chip cookie bars. You don’t want to miss this recipe! Enjoy!

How To Make Delicious Christmas Cookies

To start, add the sugars to a large mixing bowl. See my post for full instructions on how to brown butter. Add the cooled brown butter to the sugars. Mix well then add the eggs and vanilla.

Time for your dry ingredients. Give a good mix.

If your grocery store doesn’t sell these fun chocolate stars, chocolate chips will do just fine 🙂  My Target has these during the Holidays, score!

I love the big bite of chocolate the stars bring to the bars.

Transfer your dough to a parchment lined 9×13-inch baking dish. Now, they’re ready for the oven.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 30 minutes, until cooked through, then let cool before cutting into squares.

Thank you chocolate stars 🙂

Chewy and fabulous. Enjoy.
