Start by grabbing your favorite premade cookie dough. Spread this evenly in a greased 9×13 pan.

Bake for 10 minutes or until it begins to look slightly golden brown and cooked through.

Top with a few dollops of peanut butter (yes, this is the technical term! haha!) that you can spread over the top of the cookie bar. Then top with your crushed candy bar & candies once it has cooled a bit (or else they will melt). Slice and serve!

See how easy this chocolate chip bar recipe is?! A breeze. Kids and adults will both rave about the tasty creation.

How To Know When Chocolate Chip Bars Are Done

This might be a classic way to tell, but let me tell you it works every single time. Take a toothpick or cake tester and place in the center of the pan, and push down.

If the toothpick comes out clean your dessert is done. I test a handful of areas to ensure it is cooked.

Another great way to tell is you will see the chocolate chip bars begin to get golden brown on top. But don’t let them get too brown.

A light golden color is what you are looking for. And for the cookie to be a little crispier around the edges.

Why Turn Cookies Into A Chocolate Chip Bar Recipe

Let’s be honest for a minute. I love to bake, but sometimes I am booked with tasks that I need to check off my to-do list.

From taking the kids to school, after-school activities, errands for the home, I am exhausted.

I reach for an easy bar recipe because I can give my kids a tasty treat, and it doesn’t take much time.

Just roll out the cookie dough, bake and top with yummy goodies. With cookies, you have multiple batches going in, and out of the oven, you can quickly eat up an hour of time.

Cookie Bars are so much simpler and require less effort and time in the kitchen. And they’re super fun to eat!
