Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars

Author Nicole Burkholder


  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour all purpose
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups chocolate chips I prefer regular sized, milk chocolate chips
  • For the frosting:
  • Optional- 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter -OR-
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips and 1 tsp coconut oil for melting


  • Line an 8x8 pan with foil or wax paper for easy removal and cutting later
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla.
  • On low, mix in the flour and condensed milk, alternating a little at a time until well blended.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Press the dough into the pan and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, until firm.
  • For the topping, you can melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and stir in creamy peanut butter before pouring over the top of the dough. Personally, I don't like peanut butter in cookies, so I just melted dark chocolate chips with a little coconut oil and poured that over the top. It's not as smooth and creamy, but it's what I prefer. (More like a candy shell.) Your choice! :)
  • Chill until set firm again and them slice and serve!
