I think it’s fair to say that I’m a cookie dough addict.

There has been an embarrassing amount of times that I have made cookies solely so that I can eat a little bit of the batter (potentially . . . that’s the only reason I ever make cookies . . . . )

And as shameful as it is, not one single person other than me as eaten any of the Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles.

I did manage to ship off the rest of the Chocolate Chip Cookie Crusted Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie and the No Bake Cookie Dough Cheesecake yesterday though . . . . they were hard to part with. My stomach said no, my thighs said yes.

But this Cookie Dough Bark . . . .

It kind of takes the madness to a new level. Probably because it is so easy to make! There is no rolling and dipping involved. Once you have your cookie dough made, you can literally be eating this in like less than an hour. It’s suuuuuuuper addictive. It was one of those recipes that was photograph one, eat one, photograph one, eat one. :)

Cookie Dough Bark

(tap # to scale)


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of butter softened
  • 3/4 packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 3 cups milk chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Spread the flour out on a baking tray. Bake for 5 minutes.
  • In the bowl of a large stand mixer, cream the butter and the brown sugar until light and fluffy, about two minutes. Beat in the vanilla.
  • Slowly add the flour, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  • With the mixer still running, slowly add in the sweetened condensed milk. You may need to stop the mixer periodically to scrape down the sides.
  • Once it is fully combined, stir in the mini chocolate chips.
  • Melt 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips. While they are melting, like a 10 by 15 pan with wax paper. Spread the melted chocolate over the wax paper, being careful not to make it too thin (you won't be able to cover the whole surface area of the pan.
  • Refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Spread the cookie dough over the hardened chocolate in an even layer. Refrigerate 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Melt the remainder of the chocolate, and pour over the cookie dough layer. Allow to harden and then break apart.

    Oh my goodness I think this is calling my name. The kitchen is beckoning. Boxes of butter and pulling themselves out of the freezer. This bark was just meant to be.

    Wow, these look amazing! Love the concept of “bark.” Now I need to check out the mint one. Thanks for sharing!

      Kenton, the mint oreo bark is possibly the best thing I’ve ever eaten in my life. I made pounds of it for my son’s teachers last Christmas and a box for the ladies in the school office. 2 days later they called me and asked if I had any more. lol It’s awesome!

  4. Audra @ Renewed Projects says

    I wish these were in my hand right now! yum yum yum! I’m a lover of cookie dough, too, who needs a cooked cookie, right? lol Amazing recipe idea.

  5. Nancy says

    Is this bark a soft bark? Or does it get a little hardened.
    It looks delicious!!

    This looks amazing and I am chilling the first layer of chocolate now. Any reason the recipe has us mix up the cookie dough first? I realized after starting this recipe that I could have melted the chocolate and then had that chilling while I mix up the cookie dough. Just a thought. Can’t wait to dig in!
