Oreo Chocolate Chip Bars #TwoSweetiePies

Oreo Chocolate Chip Bars

Another Winning Cookie Bar

You know you’ve hit a home run when your hubby comes home from a work dinner at a fancy-schmancy restaurant, but didn’t have dessert because of the “brownies” at home. These rich and chewy Oreo Chocolate Chip Bars took only minutes to whip up, but were memorable enough to trump the eatery’s sweets menu.

Hugs and Cookies XOXO

It’s that time again! On the second Monday of the month, Danielle, my blogger friend from Hugs and Cookies, and I bake up a dish from each other’s blogs. Most of the time, I’ll zero in on a chocolate laden treat, so it’s probably no surprise that I’ve picked out a chocolate chip cookie bar to share. And with our pantry always stocked with a good supply of Oreos for the hubby and our kids, their addition in this recipe clinched the deal.

I love making cookie bars. They are quicker and easier than scooping out all that cookie dough onto numerous baking  sheets. Instead, the dough is just packed into a 9 x 13 pan and popped into the oven for 20+ minutes. The hard part is waiting for them to cool before cutting a big slice! The key to these, and most cookies, is to slightly underbake them for a dense, chewy texture. My hubby has certified these bars as terrific…one of his highest ratings!
