  2. Be careful not to overbake the bars, as they can become dry instead of chewy and delicious.
  3. Avoid cutting the bars while they are still warm, as they need to cool completely to set properly.
  4. Be mindful of the chocolate chips melting too much during baking, as they should be slightly melted but still hold their shape.
  5. Avoid using old baking soda or stale ingredients, as this can affect the rise and texture of the bars.
