Fudge Stuffed Cookie Bars. Soft and Chewy cookie bars stuffed with a thick layer of homemade fudge sauce.
These bars are chewy and soft and loaded with chocolate chips AND a layer of fudge sauce.
To make these bars I whip up a quick chocolate chip cookie dough. I spread 2/3 of the dough on the bottom then layer with the fudge sauce then top with the remaining cookie dough.
The fudge layer is super simple to make and only requires 2 ingredients! Sweetened condensed milk and semi sweet chocolate chips are melted then spread in between the cookie layers.
When they come out of the oven I let them sit for at least an hour to cool before serving.
I love to serve these bars with a tall glass of milk! Enjoy!
Fudge Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
- 2/3 cup light brown sugar
- 1 large egg room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 9 pan with non stick cooking spray, set aside.
In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment add butter and sugar and beat until creamy.
Add in egg and vanilla and beat until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl.
In a medium bowl combine the salt, baking soda and flour.
Add the dry ingredients to the stand mixer on low just until combined. Make sure not to overmix.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Press 2/3 of the dough into the prepared pan. Set aside while you prepare the fudge.
Spread the fudge ontop of the cookie dough in an even layer.
Layer with the remaining cookie dough. (I flatten the dough between my hands and lay it ontop. It is fine if it does not cover the whole pan.)
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan.
Allow it to cool completely before cutting. I place mine in the fridge for a couple hours to make it easier to cut.
Add the condensed milk and chocolate chips to a small saucepan. Over medium low heat stir until melted and smooth.
