[ Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars ]

Mattias LOVES cookie dough - but I never let my kids lick the bowl after seeing a show on how raw cookie dough sent a teenager into a coma ... THIS recipe has no eggs + is totally safe.  Tias licked the bowl, the stirring spoon and anything else he could get ahold of.  I finally kicked him out of the kitchen lol ... 


cookie dough

1⁄2 c. unsalted butter, softened 
3⁄4 c. packed light brown sugar 
1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 c. all purpose flour
1 - 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup mini chocolate chips


½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup milk chocolate chips 


  1. Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together butter and brown sugar until it is fluffy. This takes about 3 minutes. Add vanilla and bet until combined.
  3. Turn the mixer to low and alternate the flour and the sweetened condensed milk until combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Spread the dough into the 8x8 pan, cover your bars with plastic wrap then press the dough down.
  5. Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight until firm.
  6. To make the topping, combine the peanut butter and 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Stir every 30 seconds until smooth. Pour and spread over the top of the chilled dough and chill at least for 1 hour until firm.
