Quick Chocolate Chip Almond Bars Recipe @

A quicker way to satisfy your sweet cravings by making this Quick Chocolate Chip Almond Bars,  made with chocolate chip cookies.

I have a few sleeves of chocolate chip cookies gifted by my close friend.  Am well aware that nobody is going to eat them right from the package.

My recipe below is adopted from graham crackers  where I replace them with chocolate chip cookies, reduce the sugar since the chocolate chips are already sweet.

As the cookies are round in shape, it has a small gap in between. Just   fill the empty space with a broken cookies.

Quick Chocolate Chip Almond Bars  are easy, yummy and  have been a total crowd pleaser.  This imitates a favorite candy bar.
