Peppermint Patty Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Posted on


Yum!  I love these.  I mean, what’s not to love about a combo of peppermint and chocolate?

These are super easy to make, delicious to eat (I dare you to eat just one!), and even fun to photograph!  I took a lot of photos!  You must eat these warm….delish!

Mix together your favorite chocolate chip cookie bar dough.  I usually use the recipe on the back of whatever brand chocolate chips I have on hand.  Divide batter in half.   Press half batter into bar pan.  Top with as many peppermint patties as you can muster.  A single layer with some overlap usually does the trick, but a single layer with no overlap will leave you wanting more peppermint flavor.  Top with remaining cookie dough and bake as directed for bar cookies.

Now, here’s the important part!  Cool completely before cutting!  Otherwise, you end up with a great big mess.  A delicious mess, yes.  But, a sticky, gooey mess nonetheless!  Once cooled, cut, heat for 15 seconds in the microwave and ENJOY with your favorite beverage.  And repeat!

      • You can buy pre-made cookie dough and use that. Or, I just make some using the recipe on the back of my chocolate chips bag. On the back of a chocolate chip bag, it will have directions for how to make bar cookies. Usually the recipe is the same as for regular cookies, but the baking time may differ.
        A 9×13 cake pan should work great.
