I seem to be in a rut. A cookie bar rut. I can admit it and that’s the first step, right? However, I can’t say that I think this rut is a bad thing. There is fresh baking on the counter, my family is happy and it took me almost no time to accomplish that. Sounds like win, win, win for me!
These bars are so ooey gooey and rich that you can serve a small bar and no one will mind. Perfect with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee. Evan and Dewey both gave them two big thumbs up and Evan asked me if I could please make them more often.
Next time I make these, I want to add sweetened coconut. If I had found some in the cupboard, I would have added it today. I think there are all kinds of great fillings that would work: nutella, peanut butter, pretzel pieces, almonds, coconut and pretty much any chocolate candy. The sweetened condensed milk is the key to the ooey gooeyness so don’t skip that part!
