DOUBLE COOKIES AND CREAM BARS


I found this recipe and fell over with excitement! I mean COME ON! Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough with Oreo's and Hershey's Kisses! What will they come up with next?

DOUBLE COOKIES AND CREAM BARS
recipe from: Picky Palate

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 12 Oreo Cookies, broken up 
  • 25 Cookies and Cream Hershey’s Kisses

Old Fashioned Cream Drops (I USED THESE)

Cookies N Cream Miniatures

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line an 8×8 inch baking pan with foil sprayed with cooking spray.

Place butter and sugars into a large bowl, stir to combine, at least 2 minutes.
Add egg and vanilla, mixing to combine.
Add flour, baking soda, salt.
Add chocolate chips and Oreo cookie pieces, stirring to combine.
Press 1/3 of the dough into the bottom of prepared baking pan. Top with 5 rows of Hershey’s Kisses 5 per row (or as many as you can fit in like I did). Note: I used the Old Fashioned Cream Drops instead of the Kisses. Top with remaining dough and gently press. 

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool for 30 minutes, cut into squares and serve.  Makes 12-16 bars

Optional: I crushed up more Oreo Cookies and put them on top. I mean...why not!?  These bars are already a bazillion calories each!  May as well make it count!



Look at all of the layers of chocolate goodness!
