Chocolate Macaroon Cookie Bars:

For the cookie base, I was looking for the Betty Crocker DOUBLE Chocolate Chunk Cookie Mix. After searching several stores, I just gave up and improvised with a Betty Crocker Chocolate Chunk Cookie Mix and added in 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder. Just as tasty as the double chocolate cookie mix, I’m sure.
