When it comes to cookies, I have to admit I like the dough more than the cookies. {{{gasp}}} Can we still be friends? My all time favorite is chocolate chip.  I
know, it’s hard to believe that with all those options out there I chose a classic, but you like what you like.

In my house there are only 2 perfect matches for chocolate.  One is of course peanut butter (chocolate’s quintessential match made in heaven) the second of course is mint.  Chad is bonkers over peppermint or crème de menthe and when
you mix them with chocolate he is over the moon!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars transform your favorite cookie dough into a fabulous bar covered in scrumptious chocolate.  This one is a keeper for sure.

Donna’s Notes

To serve 12: Cut this recipe in half and press into a 4”x9” bread pan. Cut into 12 pieces.
To easily cut the chilled bars: run a sharp knife under hot water. Gently wipe excess water off on a towel. To cut pieces, slowly press knife into bars and allow it to almost melt through the bars. Repeat until all bars are cut.
