Perfectly Chewy, Moist and Addictive

These cookies/bars are downright craveable.  A bit of a problem (in a -not so- good way).  They are THE best chocolate cookies ever.  I bet you won't be able to eat just one.  I should make more for back-to-school lunches. :D

Chewy Molasses Bars
adapted from:

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup molasses (I used about 5T molasses and 3T white corn syrup - because that is what I had)
2 1/4 cup flour
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
2 (generous) cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375. Cream butter, sugar and molasses together in a large mixing bowl. Add vanilla and egg. In another bowl combine flour, baking soda ,baking powder and salt. Slowly incorporate into wet ingredients. Once combined fold in chocolate chips. Drop on to parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake 8-10minutes. Or if bars are desired, spread out into a greased and lined 9x13pan.  Bake for 35minutes.
