I am looking for a brownie recipe make with NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chips, the recipe was on the back of the bag. It was from several years ago. They were a cake like brownie. You melted the chocolate chips in butter than beat the eggs into the mixture also added sugar the mixture. You used 3-4 eggs. I can't rememeber how much flour. You baked it in a rectangle baking pan. Any help would be appreciated.

Bob, I just was looking up information on Brownies this morning.  The main difference between Cake like brownies and Fuggy ones is the addition of an egg.
I am sure if you search under recipes you might find the one you want.  Keep in mind that the recipe from the 70's may have changed due to changing tastes.  Look for one that approximates the ingredients and the method.
I will look as well to see if there is one that fits you description.  Maybe with two of us looking we will find it...and I may add another brownie recipe to my collection.

Ok, I did a little search for you I found a few recipes that might work or you could adapt to what you want.
Easy Double Chocolate Chip Brownies.  the photo does make this look like a Fuggy one though.
Double Chocolate Brownie.  This one looks more cake like.
Craggy Topped Fudge Brownie. This one is made in a 13X9 pan, for some reason when I clicked on the recipe the larger photo did not show but the small one when searching looked pretty good.
Chewy Chocolate Brownie. This one is also made in a 13X9 pan.
Cakey Chocolate Decadence Bar.  It has additional "stuff" on/in the brownie but I am sure that could be eliminated if the rest of the recipe sounds like it is one that might work.

Your other option go the the Ask VBB and post this question again and mark it as a question..see there is a little box next to the headline you can click on that.  You will get a response or call the 800 number for the chat line.

There was one on the back of the hershey's chocolate chip bag that melted 1 cup of the chips with the butter, added the eggs etc. then stirred the rest of the chips into the batter.  It was called Double Fudge Saucepan Brownies, probably because the butter and chips were melted in a saucepan.  it called for 2 eggs.  Maybe if you added 3 eggs it would be more cakey.

I wrote down the recipe back in the 1970's.  Here it is:

Toll House Brownies

 

1½ cups  Flour                       

2 tsp Baking Soda

2 tsp Salt

 

cup  Butter (10⅔ Tbsp)

12 oz. (2 cups) Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

1½ cups  Sugar

¼ cup Water

2 tsp Vanilla

 

4 Eggs

1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

 

1)  Preheat oven to 325°.  Grease a 13" x 9" x 2" pan.

2)  In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.

3)  In a saucepan, melt butter, chocolate, sugar; stir in water and vanilla.  Transfer to a large bowl

 and add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition (use electric mixer).

4)  Gradually blend in flour mixture.

5) Pour into greased pan and bake at 325° for 50 minutes.

This sounds like a great recipe I am surprised at the 50 minute bake time.  That is a bit long on time for a 13X9 I think I would check at  30 to 35 minutes.  Brownies often look under baked when they are done.  Supposedly they are done when the sides pull away from the pan and a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs. They will continue to bake once removed from the oven.  Over baked brownies are common and such a heartbreak.
