Festive Cookie Bar Treats To Tuck Inside Christmas Candy Boxes

Festive Cookie Bar Treats To Tuck Inside Christmas Candy Boxes There are tons of people in our lives who we love and want to add to our holiday gift list, but let’s face it – our budgets aren’t unlimited! That’s where holiday baking comes in – we all know that baking shows our love, and sure, it might take some creativity and a few hours using the mixer, but once you let them cool and stash them inside Christmas Candy Boxes, you’ll be well within your budget, while still able to gift all the people you love in your life! We know you’re busy, so we’re here to the rescue with a festive cookie bar recipe to add the merry into your gift list.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars, from Pillsbury

Makes 24 bars

Ingredients:

· 1 roll of Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough

· 1 cup peanut butter

· ½ cup vanilla frosting

· 1 teaspoon oil

· ¼ cup semisweet chocolate chips

· ¼ cup mini candy-coated milk chocolate baking bits

· Christmas Candy Boxes

Directions:

1. Preheat your oven to 350. Press the cookie dough evenly in the bottom of a 13x9 inch pan. Bake 14-18 minutes, and then allow to cool.

2. In a medium bowl, mix peanut butter, frosting, and the oil until it’s blended well.

3. Evenly spread the peanut butter mix over the cookie dough crust. Meanwhile, place the chocolate chips in a small resealable plastic bag. Microwave for about 1-2 minutes until softened. Then, cut a very small hole in the bag, and squeeze to drizzle the chocolate over the peanut butter. Spread the chocolate baking bits over the top.

4. Let the mixture stand until completely cool – about an hour. Cut into 24 bars, place in Christmas candy boxes, and let the gifting begin!

Peanut butter chocolate chip cookie bars are a scrumptious holiday treat, and we know all the wonderful people on your gift list will have their mouths watering when they open up their Christmas candy boxes. Be sure to put your own spin on them – think Hershey’s Kisses, Peppermint Patties, and Mini Peanut Butter cups – mmm! We can’t wait to hear what’s tucked inside your Christmas candy boxes.
