I love cookie dough! It is my favorite part of making cookies minus eating a warm cookie fresh from the oven. Being pregnant cookie dough is not an option though, until I found this chocolate chip cookie dough bar recipe. Talk about the perfect blend of flavors. It literally tastes identical to real cookie dough but is salmonella free.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars or Cake Pops

Ingredients

  • 1/4 c unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 c packed light brown sugar
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 c mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 c milk chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together butter and brown sugar until it is fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add vanilla and beat until combined.
  3. Turn the mixer to low and alternate the flour and sweetened condensed milk until combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the 8x8 pan. It will be sticky, so lightly flour your hands if needed.
  5. Cover your bars with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight until firm.
  6. To make the topping, combine the peanut butter and 1/2 cup chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Stir every 30 seconds until smooth. Pour and spread over the top of the chilled dough and chill at least another hour until firm.

I first made this recipe like a bar. It is so rich though that I think the next time around, I’m going to turn them into cake pops or truffles and dip them in chocolate. For me the smaller bites may be even more enjoyable than eating an entire bar. Either way, your mouth will thank you!

I may even be tempted to use it in a milkshake or mix in with some ice cream. But the possibilities are endless and with a recipe so simple and delicious, you’ll be coming back for more!
