Candy Showers Cookie Bar
Don’t say a word. Not one single word about how unhealthy this recipe is. I am fully aware that it might contain a few calories *cough*, but we all know about moderation, right? I guarantee it is one of the tastiest things you will ever eat! Below is the recipe for a single batch, but I always double mine. I usually use some of the dough for the bar pan and the rest I make cookies with.
CANDY SHOWERS COOKIE BAR RECIPE:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 sticks butter, softened
1/2 brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups milk chocolate chips (about 1 1/2 bags)
3/4 cup peanut butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl or mixer, blend butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy.
Combine flour, salt and baking soda and mix into sugar mixture:
After dough is blended well, add 3/4 bag of milk chocolate chips. I happen to love the brand below – they are big and so tasty!
Sprinkle top of cookie with remaining chocolate chips. Then divide the peanut butter into three big globs and place on top of the cookie/chocolate chips.
It will look like this when you are done:
