Cookie bars! My Boyfriend has been driving me nuts about making cookie bars. Apparently regular cookies aren’t good enough anymore. After trying these bars I would have to agree. Once you turn a cookie into a bar there’s no going back. If you store them properly overnight in an airtight container they’re just as good the next day.

Not that I would know or anything. I mean I don’t eat cookies for breakfast, do you? 😉 Okay I’ll be honest. I did have one for breakfast but I only had a small chunk. How amazing would one of these be topped with ice cream and chocolate sauce? I’ll have to remind my boyfriend about that idea later.

Some Tips and Tricks to Get the Best Cookie Bars:

  • Make sure you’re properly measuring the flour. Spoon the flour into the measuring cup, level off with the backside of a butter knife, and be careful not to pack the flour down into the cup.
  • For easy pan removal bake the cookie bars in a parchment paper lined and greased pan.
  • Make sure to only remove the bars once they have cooled to room temperature. When they first come out of the oven they will seem raw but as they cool they get more firm.
  • When whipping together the sugar and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®, allow to whip for 3 minutes before adding in the egg and vanilla. This will really give the bars that chewy quality we all are looking for.
  • When layering the cookie dough grease your hands with non-stick cooking spray. This will prevent the cookie dough from sticking to your hands. 
  • Make sure to use mini chocolate chips. The larger ones are too big for the thickness of the cookie dough layers.
  • Be sure to sprinkle the top with more chocolate chips before baking but only if you want them to look prettier 🙂
