Chocolate chip cookie dough, peanut butter cup filling, and a chocolate ganache create three layers of no bake goodness. No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars are simply irresistible! 

Stack of Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars.

Cookie dough has a special place in my heart. The very first thing I learned how to make was chocolate chip cookies. I’ve had my fair share of raw cookie dough in my days. Now, I know that there’s some concern about salmonella and such, so if you are worried about that, be sure to check out the notes in my recipe for a way to cook the flour prior to using it in the recipe.

Cookie dough bars are a thing of beauty. Edible cookie dough topped off with chocolate? Yes, please! I decided to take it up a notch by adding in a layer of peanut butter cup filling. The result is something absolutely marvelous. It’s rich and you only need a small piece, but that doesn’t stop me from eating way too much in one sitting. You’ve been warned!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Ingredients

Cookie Dough Layer

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar tightly packed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups mini chocolate chips

Peanut Butter Layer

  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Chocolate Layer

  • 12 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream optional
Instructions
  • Spray a 9x9 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and line with parchment paper.
  • Make the cookie dough layer by using a hand mixer to cream together butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix in salt and vanilla. Slowly mix in flour and sweetened condensed milk, alternating between the two. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Press the dough into the prepared baking pan.
  • Make the peanut butter layer by using a hand mixer to cream together peanut butter and powdered sugar in a mixing bowl. Gently spread the peanut butter mixture over the cookie dough layer.
  • Make the chocolate layer by pouring the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl. For a softer chocolate layer, pour in heavy cream (optional). Microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until chocolate is smooth and melted. Pour over peanut butter layer immediately and smooth out with a rubber spatula.
  • Refrigerate for 4 hours before slicing and serving.
Notes
If you are concerned about consuming raw flour you can toast the flour prior to using it in the recipe. Simply place the flour into a skillet over medium heat and toast for 3 to 5 minutes. Use the toasted flour in the recipe as directed.

These were very good! I did add the cream to do the chocolate layer. Do these need to continue to be refrigerated after they have firmed up for cutting or can they be stored at room temperature?

Made this today, and very good, however, how come the picture does not represent the true thickness of the peanut butter layer, I doubled mine, as I have been baking for many years and sensed the thin results if done as written. I doubled it and it was similar to picture.

I just made this and tasted each layer as I went. That is probably the best raw cookie dough without egg I’ve ever tasted. I had a couple of problems though. I used a 9×9 pan and cookie dough was great. I then did the peanut butter layer and it was a very, very thin layer and hard to smooth over the cookie dough, but I managed and it looked good, but very thin. Definitely not as thick as your picture. Then the chocolate layer, I didn’t use the cream (I do wish you wrote which way you did yours)… Read more »

Hi! I heated the semi sweet chocolate topping in the microwave as directed. I added in the heavy cream at the end and the chocolate seized and ruined my entire batch of topping.

What did I do wrong? Was I supoosed to combine the heavy cream to the unmelted chips first?

Holy yum! Every single layer looks delicious, so I bet every single bite is simply decadent. Everyone in my family would go crazy for these!
