Servings 48


  • For the Cookie Dough:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 can 14oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups mini chocolate chip morsels
  • For the frosting:
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels


  • To make the cookie dough base:
  • With mixer set to high speed, beat butter and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Add vanilla, peanut butter, and condensed milk, mix until combined.
  • Slowly, add in the flour until combined. Then gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Line a 8x8 baking dish with plastic wrap or foil. Press the cookie dough mixture into the baking dish.
  • To make the chocolate peanut butter ganache topping:
  • Add chocolate chips and peanut butter to a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, then stir until all chocolate has melted. Heat in increments of 15 seconds if the chocolate hasn't melted.
  • Pour the topping over the cookie dough and spread with a spatula.
  • Place the baking dish in the fridge for 3 hours, or overnight, until fully set. Then, cut into mini bite sized bars.
  • Keep any left over bars refrigerated in an airtight container for up to a week.
