Chocolate chips. Chocolate chip cookie dough. Two simple pleasures in life, right?
A few minutes ago, I stumbled across this fabulous recipe. Actually, the recipe found me. I wasn’t looking for recipes. I was writing a freelance article when out of the blue my mouse clicked on a link. And then another. And another. When the clicking flurry died down, this recipe was staring me in the face.
Now, I’m not hungry at the moment. Really. I’m not. But who, I ask you, in their right mind could not get excited about a recipe for bar cookies that consisted of chocolate chip cookie dough topped with a frosting made out of melted chocolate chips mixed with peanut butter? I’m just saying.
So here’s the skinny about the recipe. It doesn’t have raw eggs in it. Nor cooked eggs. It is egg challenged. Which is good.
However, it has sweetened condensed milk — which IMHO is nectar for the gods.
You make the cookie dough, refrigerate it, make the frosting and smear it over the bar cookies, refrigerate some more, and then cut into bar cookies and snarf them all down in one sitting.
Grandchildren would absolutely love this recipe! I’m sure that they always snitch a taste of dough when you make cookies together. My only thought is that they might not have the patience (nor the time) to wait for the dough to chill.
If your grandchildren would be around for several hours, this would be an easy recipe to make together before all of your activities. Then, you can eat them just before they go. They will leave with a stomach full of deliciousness and be enveloped in a warm glow of your grandmotherly love because you made this recipe for them.
Oh. Right. The recipe. (I bet you thought that I had forgotten about linking to the recipe . . . But I didn’t. Really . . .)
Here’s a link to the recipe of the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars.
Now, please excuse me while I grab the car keys and head out to the grocery store to get a case of sweetened condensed milk. I need to make 30-40 tons of these bar cookies.
