You can simply make oreo chocolate chip cookie bars! Everything milk (and you) loves in one bar! 

Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookie Bars 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup salted butter (take out of the fridge about an hour before baking to let soften)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 2/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 12 oreo cookies (crushed)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips 
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional) 

Instructions 

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees 
  2. Cream (mix) butter and sugar in a large bowl - i did not have a mixer so i found it easier to use my hands -add in eggs and vanilla and stir until well combined
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the baking powder and salt with 1 cup of flour. Then pour into the butter mixture and stir in the rest of the flour - when pouring in the rest of the flour it is best to do a little at a time and not all at once, this way it will be easier to mix
  4. Fold in crushed oreos and chocolate chips - use your hands to fold the oreos and chocolate chips into the dough
  5. Sprinkle flour in a pan and on your hands and press the dough into the pan - if you find the dough is too sticky use more flour 
  6. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes - closer to 30 minutes will give you cookie bars with a more gooey inside 
  7. Allow bars to cool and eat up!
