My husband and I have an on going tradition. Every Christmas we try to out do one another on stocking stuffers. Which usually leaves us eating Christmas candy until May. This year we went way overboard and I kept thinking “What am I going to do with all this candy?” After a month of thinking I finally decided to make Sugar Cookie Bar to get rid of most of if. Today I’m going to show you how to make your very own sugar cookie bar using left over chocolate from the holidays.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 1/2 Cups (3 Sticks) of Butter
1 1/2 Cups of Sugar
1 1/2 Teaspoons of Pure Vanilla Extract
3 1/2 Cups of All Purpose Flower
1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
3/4 Cup of Rolled Oats (Optional)
1-2 Cups of Random Chocolate Pieces Chopped
1/2 Cup of Milk Chocolate Chopped
Using a hand or stand mixer, combine the butter and sugar, until it’s creamy. Add in the eggs and the pure vanilla extract. Mix well.
Then in a separate bowl pour the all purpose flower, baking powder, and salt together. Making sure it’s well combined.
Slowly add the flour to the butter/sugar mixture and mix until completely combined. Chill dough for 3 hours.
While waiting for the dough to chill, cut up the random pieces of holiday chocolate into chunks. Also cut up the milk chocolate.
After the 3 hours, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9x2 inch pan with aluminam foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray.
In a large bowl break up the cookie dough. Stir in the oats, random chocolate pieces and the milk chocolate pieces.
Pat mixture into prepared baking pan. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until the edges start pulling away from the sides.
Cool in the pan, on a wire rack. Once it’s cool cut into bars and enjoy!!
