Delicious Chocolate Cookie Bars

You know how much of a chocoholic I am.  So I’m sure you can imagine how I felt when I saw a cookie bars recipe land in my email.

Yes that’s right….I was drooling but can you blame me?!

The recipe for these delicious cookie bars was submitted by Cynthia of Baby Shower Ideas and Shops.

This is the kind of recipe that you can whip up in no time at all and would have everyone diving back for more.

Delicious Chocolate Cookie Bars

Normally when I think of creating something out of leftovers, it is with the old boring drips and drabs that you have lying around in the pantry.

However, making something out of leftover chocolate bites?  Now this is something to sit up and take notice about!

Just look at that delicious pile of chocolate goodness all mixed together.  It really is a dance on the taste bud’s.

Now imagine all this amazing chocolate mixed together to form cookie bars like no other cookie bar.  I think I have your attention!

Cookie Bar Ingredients

This recipe uses Oreo’s, M&M’s, chocolate chips and Rolo’s, but you could really use your imagination and whip up that treat that is perfect for you.

Although I have to say that this combo is sitting quite nicely with me, so I’m not sure I would be rushing to change it in a hurry!

Making Cookie Bars

Simply whip up the batter and mix together with the chocolate treats.

How to make cookie bars

Spread into an 8 x 8 inch baking tin and approximately 20 minutes later your cookie bars will emerge from the oven…sending a rather delightful aroma around the house no doubt!

Let the cookie bars cool before eating….if you can resist it!

Cookie Bars

Ingredients

  • 115 g unsalted butter
  • 200g light soft brown sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 150g plain flour
  • 8 oreos (chopped up)
  • 100g m&ms (or other chocolate)
  • 100g chocolate chips
  • 50g rolos (or caramel chocolates)

Instructions

You can make this recipe by hand or using a stand mixer.

Line an 8×8 inch tin with foil and grease with butter.

Pre heat the oven to 180C.

Melt the butter and pour into a large bowl.

Wait for it to cool down (so you don’t scramble the egg) and add the vanilla extract, brown sugar and egg.

Beat together until combined and smooth.

Next sieve in the flour.

Stir together until just incorporated.

Pour in the chocolates, sweets and cookies and mix in.

Spread into the tin.

Cook for 20-24 minutes until browned around the edges and pulling away from the sides and the middle is slightly firm to touch.

Leave to cool in the tin for at least half an hour before removing and cutting into squares.
