Cookies & Cream Cookie Bars


These Cookies & Cream Cookie Bars are always the first thing to go when I bring them to a party. Everyone loves them, and when you cut them into smaller servings, there is more to go around (and you don't feel as guilty)! If your stumped on what to bring to a party for New Year's Eve, these cookie bars are great as either an appetizer or a dessert or both! The pictures show the Halloween Edition of these cookie bars, but as the seasons change, so do the editions of Oreos, so these practically go with any holiday or occasion!

Oreo Cookie Bars - Adapted from Skinny Not Skinny
Yield: 16 - 24 bars depending on the size
1½ cup all-purpose flour
1½ cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup brown sugar
¾ cup butter, softened
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
½ cup white chocolate chips
20 Halloween Oreos (chopped) - Or Red Holiday Oreos for Christmas - or regular oreos for an everyday treat!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar and butter in large bowl; mix well. This mixture will be crumbly.
  2. Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper and lightly grease the paper with shortening. This is VERY important to do or your bars are going to stick to the bottom of the pan. Reserve 1 cup oat mixture and press remainder onto bottom of the baking pan.
  3. Bake 10 minutes.
  4. While the crust is cooking, chop the Halloween Oreos into pieces.
  5. After removing from oven, immediately pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crust.
  6. Sprinkle with chocolate and white chocolate chips and top with Oreo pieces.
  7. Top with reserved oat mixture; press down firmly.
  8. Bake an additional 25 minutes. Topping will be lightly browned.
  9. Cool bars for at least 15 minutes and then cut into bars.
  10. ENJOY!
