  • Bake about 25 minutes or until bars are golden brown. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Frost bars with desired frosting. Or use one-half can chocolate frosting and one-half can of vanilla frosting and swirl frostings together on bars. Makes 3 dozen bars.

Tips

*If desired, substitute an 18-ounce package refrigerated chocolate chip and peanut butter cookie dough for plain peanut butter cookie dough. Omit chocolate chips.

Tips

Cover bars in pan and store at room temperature overnight. Or place unfrosted bars in a single layer in an airtight container; cover and freeze for up to 3 months.
