"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375
Grease 13 x 9 pan
Combine cream cheese, chocolate chips and milk in sauce pan and cook until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 vanilla. Set aside.
Stir together flour, sugar, butter, eggs, baking powder, salt and 1/2 vanilla. Mix until combined. Press 1/2 of dough into the pan. Spread the chocolate mixture on top and cover with over 1/2 of dough. I usually flattened smaller pieces of the dough in the palms of my hands and puzzle together into the pan. It won't cover completely, but get as close as you can.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. The top should be golden brown. Cool.
