Cookies and Cream Cookie Dough Bars

*NOTE: The FDA has recently warned that while it is unlikely, eating raw flour can make you ill, therefore they recommend against eating raw cookie dough or other products made with uncooked all-purpose wheat flour. I have updated this recipe to use heat treated flour, oat flour, or fine almond flour for safety.

I’m a little bit like a dog with a bone when I get a hold of a great idea, and easy no-bake cookie dough bars is one of those ideas. The ‘cookie dough’ base is made without eggs or raw wheat flour, but tastes exactly like the raw dough we all want but can’t have — the illicit angle just adds to the pleasure. This latest in my series is just one more bit of evidence that I’m obsessed with everything cookies ‘n cream. (I’ve even made cookies and cream popsicles.)

These bars have chopped cookies mixed right in, so you’ll get a little crunch in every bite. The first time I made these I finely crushed the cookies before adding them which resulted in a chocolatey base, see below. It tasted great but I didn’t think it ‘read’ as sufficiently ‘cookies and cream’, so I went back to the drawing board.

This is quite rich, and is more like a fudge-y candy that a brownie or a blondie, so cut them in small pieces.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste or extract
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups heat treated flour, oat flour, or finely ground almond flour Find heat treated flour here.
  • 10 Oreo® cookies, chopped

topping

  • 12 ounces white candy confectionery in bar or wafer form
  • 1/2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 Oreo® cookie finely crushed

Instructions

  • Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Beat in the salt and vanilla, and then add the oat flour and condensed milk, alternately, until combined. Blend in the crushed cookies and just mix lightly until they are distributed.
  • Lightly spray a 8x8 square baking pan and line with a sheet of parchment paper or foil so that the ends extend over the sides. This is so you can lift the chilled bars out for easier cutting. It's optional.
  • Press the dough into the bottom of the pan with your fingers, making sure it is evenly spread out across the whole pan. Smooth out the surface.
  • Cover and refrigerate until firm, (about 3-4 hours) or even overnight if you like. The texture will be similar to a fudge.
  • To make the chocolate topping, put white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl or measuring cup and microwave for one minute. Stir, and then return to the microwave for short bursts of 15 seconds until the chocolate is totally smooth and melted. Don't over heat. Stir in most of the crushed cookie crumbs, reserving a few to sprinkle over the top.
  • Let the chocolate cool for about 5 minutes, and then pour onto the dough. Spread out evenly. Sprinkle the remaining crumbs over the top.
  • Return to the refrigerator until the topping is firm. Cut into 16 squares.
  • Keep the bars in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

Cook's notes

  • Make sure you fluff your flour before scooping it and leveling it off.  If your dough seems on the dry side, feel free to add a little more of the condensed milk.
  • Go easy on the heat when you melt your white topping, low and slow is best, with lots of stirring in between.  If it seems thick, add a bit more vegetable oil.
  • If you don't like white chocolate, use semi sweet, it will be just as good.

    These look amazing. Only thing is, I’m a bit wary of feeding my family raw flour. Might you recommend any other types of flour I might be able to use so these are a bit… erm, “safe” isn’t the right word for this, but… so there’s less chance of me or my fam getting sick? Thanks a bunch!

    Please share your secret to cutting them perfectly. I’m attempting this recipe for a special gathering and would love for them to look as perfect as yours!

      If you look closely you’ll see that several of them did shatter a bit when I cut them. I make them for family, so that doesn’t matter so much. The first thing I would say is try not to stress about it, they probably won’t be perfect, but to be honest I think the little bit of shattering makes them look appealing! The second thing I’d say is cut them before the chocolate gets super hard. OR, you can take them out of the fridge and let them sit a while until the chocolate topping has warmed up a bit. A large sharp knife helps, and some people like to dip it in very hot water, then quickly dry it off, before making each cut. Hope this helps Diana.
