I’m back from Boston and had a fantastic time!  Of course, what stood out to me was the FOOD.  The North End “Little Italy” in Boston had some amazing Italian restaurants that we were able to eat at – “Giacomo’s” and “Panza”.  I can not even explain to you how good the food was – each had a long wait to be seated (they are very small and in high demand) and both of these restaurants were well worth it.  I don’t even know which I enjoyed more, but I know I’d go back to Boston in a heartbeat just to eat that food again.

We also had a great time at the baseball game!  I was very impressed by Fenway Park (as much as I hate to say it, being a Yankees fan and all) and enjoyed exploring the stadium that is so full of history and taking in my first ball game of the season…even if it was only 50 degrees!

Who else is constantly tempted to sneak some raw cookie dough when baking?  I always give in to the temptation with the excuse of “taste testing”….sometimes even going back for a second taste, JUST to be sure.  Come on, it’s the best part of the baking process and I think everyone on planet earth has to agree with that.

These no-bake chocolate chip cookie dough bars contain no eggs and are basically like eating chocolate and peanut butter-covered raw cookie dough.  This dessert is basically a big ol’ slab of cookie dough topped with a delicious, rich layer of melted chocolate and peanut butter.  You really can’t go wrong with the trio of peanut butter, chocolate, and cookie dough, am I right?

These bars are best kept refrigerated.  I let mine sit out for 5-10 to soften up a little before I cut into them to make it easier.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars

No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars recipe made up of a rich layer of melted chocolate and peanut butter on top of thick chocolate chip cookie dough. They are an egg-less dessert and no baking required!

Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 c. mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips (or semi-sweet)

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix together butter and brown sugar until it is fluffy. This takes about 3 minutes.
  2. Add vanilla and beat until combined.
  3. Turn the mixer to low and alternate the flour and the sweetened condensed milk until combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the 8×8 pan that has been lined with parchment paper. 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 ½ cup chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl.
  7. Stir every 30 seconds until smooth.
  8. Pour and spread over the top of the chilled dough and chill for at least 1 hour until firm.
  9. Let sit out for 5-10 minutes to soften before cutting into.

      I had been about 10 years ago but didn’t remember anything about it! It’s so fun!

  11. April 8, 2014 at 6:46 PM #

    Yum, these look amazing! I love cookie bars. Now, cookie bars made with chocolate, peanut butter are at the top of my list. This is one cookie dough recipe I wouldn’t mind eating raw :D

    Delicious but I think you left out an important step – lining the pan with parchment paper before pressing in the dough so it’s easy to get the cookie dough slab out of the pan? (Wishing I read the original blog that you got this recipe from before I made them..would have seen that step was missing from your write up.) :-( Also – you’ve got a few typos in your recipe.

    • April 10, 2014 at 7:53 PM #

      Oh my gosh I’m so sorry!! I can’t believe I forgot to add in that step :( I added it now. I feel so stupid! Again…sorry!!!

    • April 11, 2014 at 1:31 AM #

      p.s. I also fixed the typos :( Must have been having an “off” day :(

  18. April 11, 2014 at 12:08 AM #

    Where’s my care package?! Do you mind bringing these with you to Miami? Because I could really, really use about a dozen or two :)

  19. April 13, 2014 at 7:09 PM #

    I’d buy heaps of these if they were for sale. MUST TRY recipe, unless I want to spend the next few nights just dreaming about it.

  20. April 19, 2014 at 10:33 AM #

    I can’t believe these are no bake! They look amazing. Glad to hear you had such a good time in Boston :)

    Wowza. Any excuse to eat cookie dough is good enough for me. I am finding no-bake recipes for when it gets too hot to bake in the summer. This looks like the perfect recipe!

    These babies should be illegal. They are sooooo decadent! Unfortunately they are soooo yummy too. And addictive.

  30. June 21, 2014 at 4:14 PM #

    I LOVE egg-free cookie dough related recipes… you’re practically encouraged to eat it all raw! :)

    Can I replace the peanut butter with something else? Peanut butter disgusts me :/ I used to like it but after I had my son I hated it due to the pregnancy and now I just can’t stand it still.

    • July 7, 2014 at 3:17 PM #

      awww I understand – you can use any other kind of nut butter…or Biscoff/Cookie Butter! They all will have the same consistency. :)

    I made these the other day, but I put them on top of BROWNIES! Yes, I made brownies (extra thin, to allow room for the cookie dough layer), and let them cool, then put this recipe right on top of it. then topped with just melted chocolate chips. I didn’t want peanut butter.
    OMG SO GOOD!

    July 18, 2014 at 3:26 PM #

    I forgot to mention, I ended up with more cookie dough than brownies, so I will be making cookie dough buckeyes!

  37. August 9, 2014 at 11:56 PM #

    wow, looks delicious, i really want that for my brunch snack….

  38. September 10, 2014 at 2:52 AM #
