OMG you guys. I am seriously about to blow your mind with these cookie bars.They have ALL of my favorite things–caramel, toffee, peanut butter, and OF COURSE, chocolate!
I am a HUGE fan of cookie bars. They are so, easy to make and there is just nothing like a big fat cookie bar chock full of goodness. For those of us with limited time on our hands who don’t want to worry about taking cookies in and out of the oven for an hour–bars are the way to go.
PLUS.bars allow for layers. Layers of flavor. Layers of creamy, caramelly goodness that just melts in your mouth.
It starts with an amazing cookie base that is chock full of flavor.The cookie bars are fortified with oats which helps it withstand the decadence that is sandwiched between the cookie layers.
An ooey, gooey caramel layer is the perfect center to these cookie bars.Perfection, without the mess. The caramel stays put and is the perfect counterpart to the cookie.
Soft and sweet, it’s exactly what your teeth want to bite into.
