Mint Chocolate Chip Sugar Cookie Bars

Yield: 16 bars

Ingredients

for the sugar cookie bars:
2 & 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
for the mint chocolate chip frosting:
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 & 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 & 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
2 tablespoons milk
4-5 drops green food coloring
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

    for the sugar cookie bars:
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8x8 pan with non-stick cooking spray
  2. In a large bowl sift together flour, salt, and baking soda.
  3. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each egg. Mix in the vanilla. Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix just until combined.
  4. Spread into prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake for 10-15 min, until light golden brown or until a toothpick comes out clean
  6. Cool completely.
  7. for the mint chocolate chip frosting:
  8. While the cookie bars are cooling, make the frosting -
  9. Cream the butter. Beat in the sugar and peppermint extract. Add the milk (add more sugar or milk to get desired consistency, I made it exactly as written.) Add drops of green food coloring until you get your desired color of green. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  10. Frost cookie bars. Cut into squares.

Notes

The frosting made the way it is written is not a thick frosting (it wouldn't stand up on cupcakes) If you'd prefer a thick frosting, you will need to add more powdered sugar.

    Such a great idea! Made two batches and both were still under cooked. Perhaps a longer time or a bigger tray for a thinner bar. 10-15 minutes is not enough! No one like food poisoning.

      That totally sucks they were undercooked Gabby! Mine came out fine in that amount of time but my oven is pretty temperamental & can sometimes cook things really fast!! Maybe try 15-20 minutes if you still use an 8×8 & just keep an eye on them those last few minutes to make sure they don’t get too done :)
