Chocolate Chip Bars/Cookies

1 c. margarine, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 3/4 c. flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 bag of milk chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, beat margarine until creamy; add sugars.  Beat until light and fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time until well incorporated.  Add vanilla and mix well.  Blend flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a medium bowl.  Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture; mix well.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Bake in a 15x10x1 baking sheet (I line my sheet with nonstick aluminum foil) at 375 for 12-15 minutes.
**If you choose to make them into cookies just drop by spoonfuls and bake at 350 for 8 minutes.  Let set on sheets for 5-7 minutes. They will look underbaked when coming out of the oven.  Don't be tempted to bake longer! Don't do it!! Walk away from the oven door!  They will finish up on the sheets.
