These Chocolate Chip and m&m Cookie Dough Bars are to DIE for and make way more than you’d think! Just a bite will satisfy your sweet tooth with the doughy, safe to eat cookie dough and the crunch of the cold chocolate chips and m&m’s.
If you’ve ever been one to not eat the raw cookie dough because of the pending risk of raw eggs making you sick … yet longed for the sweet, sugary, and crunch of the cold chocolate chips that raw cookie dough brings to your tastebuds and tongue, you’re in luck. This cookie dough recipe is fantastic. Just absolutely fantastic, with no raw eggs.
And, I must say too that, much like fudge, one piece goes a long ways. An 8×8 dish lasted awhile around here because even a half by half inch piece was so amazing and rich that you only need a couple pieces to last you awhile, so rest assured, you’ll have plenty to enjoy.
In fact, out of an eight inch by eight inch dish you really could make about 60-70 bite size pieces. Don’t miss this dessert – it will be the talk of your night.
Gather your ingredients:
- ½ c. (1 stick) butter, softened (salted or unsalted is fine)
¾ c. packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 c. chocolate chips
1/2 cup mini m&m’s
½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup milk chocolate chips
And, here’s how you whip this amazing dessert up:
Line an 8×8 inch pan or dish with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the softened butter and brown sugar until fluffy for about 2-3 minutes. Next, add your vanilla until combined with the sugar mixture. Alternate your flour and sweetened condensed milk until combined.
Using a spatula, mix in chocolate chips and m&m’s.
Cover your bars with foil and refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm. If you’re in a hurry you can use the freezer. Next, flip the cookie dough over into the pan, taking it off of the parchment paper.
Once cookie dough has set up and hardened, you’re ready to make your topping. Combine the peanut butter and ½ cup chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Pour and spread over the top of the chilled dough and chill again at least for 1 hour until firm in the refrigerator or freezer.
Next, cut into pieces and enjoy! 🙂
