Cookie Dough Bars with Peanut Butter Fudge Topping



Who doesn’t love cookie dough? This way you can just skip that pesky baking part and eat the cookie dough as is. These are pretty intense so I could only eat one at once but they were sooo good. They don’t even really need the topping, but why not add a fudge topping when you’re already eating straight cookie dough. I really liked them when they were cold out of the fridge. These are a great treat and all my friends gobbled them down super fast.


  • ½ c. unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ c. packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 c. 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


  • Line an 8×8 inch pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and set aside.
  • With a hand mixer or stand mixer, mix together butter and brown sugar until it is fluffy. Add vanilla and beat until combined.
  • Turn the mixer to low and alternate the flour and the sweetened condensed milk until combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
  • Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the 8×8 pan. It will be sticky so lightly flour your hands if needed.
  • Cover your bars with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight until firm.  You can also freeze to set faster if you’re in a hurry
  • To make the topping, combine the peanut butter and ½ 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 for 1 hour until firm.
