This easy no bake cookie dough cookie bars recipe makes a delicious bar cookie from homemade chocolate chip cookie dough. It’s easy to make with only 5 minutes’ work and requires no baking!

Ingredients

Units

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups flour
12 oz. chocolate chips, divided
1/2 cup peanut butter, optional

Instructions

  1. Mix butter, sugar and vanilla.
  2. Add condensed milk and flour. Mix well.
  3. Fold in 6 oz. or half of the chocolate chips.
  4. Pour into an 8×8 pan. (Parchment paper on the bottom of the pan makes it easier to remove from the pan.)
  5. Melt the peanut butter and the remaining chocolate chips together in a pan or in the microwave.
  6. Pour on top of the dough.
  7. Chill, covered, for 3 hours or overnight.

Notes

  • You can adjust the chocolate chips in this recipe and add more to the dough or when you melt them with the peanut butter.
  • When chocolate chips are expensive, you can add a little less of them than normal and nobody will notice.
  • If you aren’t a fan of peanut butter or can’t eat it you can just top these cookie dough bars with melted chocolate chips.
  • This makes a thick cookie. For a thinner one, you could use a larger pan.
  • Sometimes, recipes like this don’t make it into a pan. We chill it for a bit in the bowl and then everyone grabs a spoon and dives in.
