Monster Cookie Dough Bars
Monster Cookie Dough Bars are no bake and egg free! Monster cookie dough with peanut butter, quick oats, and mini m&m's topped with milk chocolate ganache.
Servings 25 squares
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter softened
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups quick oats
- 3/4 cup mini m&m's
- 1¼ cups milk chocolate chips
- 3 tablespoons heavy cream
- 1/4 cup mini m&m's
Line an 8x8 baking dish with tin foil or parchment paper. Doing this will make the bars easier to lift out and cut into squares.
In a mixing bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Beat together with a hand mixer until combined and creamy.
Add the peanut butter and vanilla extract. Beat together until combined.
Add flour, oats, and m&m's and beat on low speed until combined.
Press into prepared pan.
To make the topping: In a microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate and heavy cream for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. *It may not take the entire 2 minutes until it's melted. That's ok.
Pour the milk chocolate over the cookie dough bars and spread out evenly. Immediately sprinkle with remaining M&M's.
Cover the pan with tin foil and refrigerate for 2 hours. Lift the bars out by the overhang of the foil or parchment paper and cut into squares. Store the bars in the fridge.
