Will's Swirly Bars

Ingredients 
Directions 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter and flour 8x8 in pan.

Cream the butter, white sugar, and dark brown sugar. Add the egg and mix again. Add baking soda (dissolve with 1 tsp hot water), pure vanilla extract, and kosher salt. Beat 1-2 minutes until creamy and fluffy. Add the flour and mix until incorporated.

Spread mixture in prepared 8x8 pan until even. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the spread mixture. 

Bake for 5 minutes to melt the chips. Remove from oven and using a butter knife "swirl" the chocolate throughout the batter (go up, down and then across). Return to oven and bake for an additional 16-17 minutes. Bars will still look a little soft when you remove them, don't overbake! 

This recipe may be easily doubled and put in a 9x13 pan, as well.  Enjoy!
