No Bake Cookie Dough Bars



If you have a knack for stealing spoonfuls of cookie dough before they are baked, 
well then this is the dessert for you.  Consider yourself warned!

Warning.

Don't not blame me {i.e. sending me Facebook messages, emails or show up at my door} after you eat these. They are addicting.  They are rich.  Super, super sinful.

They do not contain eggs, so this dough is perfectly edible to eat uncooked.  But plan on sending off most of it to your neighbors, friends, co-workers and the like.

Or...better yet.  Cut into squares and place in containers in the freezer for 'small bites' when you need a quick sugar pick-me-up.

Hey - I've never once claimed these are healthy!  I'm just getting all the warnings out there in front of us.  

Now, moving on.

I had been thinking about this recipe as the husband always, always walks by while I'm making cookies and steals spoonfuls of the dough.  He has no care that he probably shouldn't be eating it.  He doesn't care.

So in my head I thought, "he'll love this!"

I should never think like that.

I showed it off with great prestige the other night to a crowd of just....

Thanks.

And...

This is good.

Geesh.

For a family of cookie dough lovers, they rather just eat it out of the bowl!  Or they are hiding their truly feelings.

But seriously, this stuff is good {no matter what they say}.

With the consistency of fudge, keep this in the fridge or freezer.  I threw some white chocolate chips in too, just because, but feel free to change it up.  Add in peanut butter chips to the dough or to the top chocolate layer, do whatever you want!

1 stick unsalted butter
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 1/2  c. chocolate chips
1 c. white chocolate chips

1.  Line the bottom of an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
2.  Cream together butter and sugars until fluffy.
3.  Add in the vanilla and sweetened condensed milk to combine.
4.  Fold in the flour until creamy.
5.  Fold in 1 c. of the chocolate chips and the 1 c. of the while chocolate chips to form the dough. Pat into the pan, pressing down to lay flat.
6.  Refrigerate for a couple of hours to chill.
7.  In the microwave melt the remaining chocolate chips in 15 second intervals, stirring each time until melted.  Pour over the bars and spread to make smooth.
8.  Place back in the fridge to harden, at least one hour.
9.  Keep in the fridge or the freezer, cutting into bars first for easy access!
