This is another church cookbook recipe - this one from my grandmother's old church cookbook (circa 1990). It's not healthy, but we eat well most of the time, so I think a little treat here and there does no harm.
When I made these, Paul, my youngest brother John, and I all had a hard time staying away from eating the whole pan in one sitting. Afterwards, John talked about it so much that I made him his own batch, as a Christmas gift. He was thrilled.
Recently, I made a big batch of this to take to a couple of my friends at Type A Con. Hoping they enjoyed it as much as we always do.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle
1 cup margarine or softened butter
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1 6 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
2 cups sifted flour
In bowl, combine margarine, vanilla, salt and flour; blend well (it takes a while to get it to form up into a dough). Gradually beat in sugar. Add the chocolate morsels and walnuts. Mix well. This is a very stiff batter. Press lightly into a oil sprayed 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 375* for 25 minutes. Cool, the break into irregular pieces.
