Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars – chewy cookie bars filled with chocolate min chips, drizzled with more chocolate and dressed up with holiday sprinkles! One fun treat that will leave everyone begging for more!
Looking for a sweet treat idea for a holiday bake sale, a get-together or to give away to friends and family? I am here to help! I have just the right recipe for you today! Super easy to make cookie bars (a no-fail recipe) filled with chocolate and mint flavors – perfect for the holidays! Each bar is drizzled with even more chocolate and sprinkled with Christmas funfetti. How is that for fun and easy?
I was chosen by Nestlé® Toll House® to create a recipe with their newest product: Nestlé® Toll House® DelightFulls™ Filled Baking Morsels. I wanted easy, fun and of course delicious! Something that moms and kids can make together and have tons of fun without worrying about careful measurements or special techniques. This recipe is as easy as can be and always presents the best results! Just like the little morsels!
Friends, Nestle just released new chocolate morsels that are filled! Read that again: filled chocolate morsels! There are 4 different kinds: Dark Chocolate Morsels with Mint Filling (featured in this recipe), Milk Chocolate Morsels with Peanut Butter filling, Milk Chocolate Morsels with Caramel Filling and Dark Chocolate Morsels with Cherry Flavored Filling. Each morsels gives twice the flavor!
Whenever I make cookies, my kiddos are always with me, eager to help. They whisk the dry ingredients together and add the chocolate morsels to the dough. Each of them make their one special cookie by scooping and dropping the dough onto the baking sheet. They always remember which one is theirs! These cookie bars were a family effort, I guided and handled the mixer part, our kids whisk the flour and helped scoop the dough mounds and my Hubby taste tested! Everyone had a lot of fun! That’s my favorite part about holiday baking!
