I haven't made these Congo squares for a long time, so I thought I would bake them. It is an easy and simple recipe to make. I love that when I am done mixing the ingredients, all that needs to be done is to pour the batter into a pan. I wanted something quick and simple, and this is the recipe. My mother used to make these squares when I was a child. If you love sweets, then you will love these.

These look yum for sure. They look like chocolate chip cookie bars. Do you know why they are called Congo bars?
