Cookie dough strikes again! This Cookie Dough Bark combines chocolate chip, chocolate with white chocolate chips, and peanut butter cookie doughs into one recipe. Each kind of cookie dough is made into little balls then they get covered in melted candy melts! It is really good. I especially like the way the chocolate cookie dough tastes with white chocolate candy melts on it. Yes, it’s so good. You’re gonna love this Cookie Dough Bark!
In the bowl of an electric mixer combine soft butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla.
Beat in the flour and salt.
At this point remove about 1/3 of the dry dough. To the remaining 2/3 dough in the electric mixer add milk, mixing well.
Remove half of the dough in the electric mixer, so that only 1/3 of the total amount of dough is left in the mixer. Beat mini chocolate chips into the dough in the electric mixer. Remove this dough from the mixer.
To the mixing bowl add another 1/3 of dough (not the dry dough). To the dough in the mixer add cocoa powder, and chopped white chocolate. Mix well. Remove the dough from the mixer.
Next, wash and dry the mixing bowl and place the dry dough in the bowl along with peanut butter and a bit of flour. Beat together well.
Now you should have three different cookie doughs chocolate chip, chocolate with white chocolate, and peanut butter.
Line a small sheet pan with sides with waxed paper. Using the small end of a melon baller form the cookie dough into balls and place them on the wax paper lined sheet pan. Don’t worry this is the most time-consuming part of the whole recipe. Once the balls are formed place them in the freezer until they are hard.
Once the cookie dough balls are hard (and still in the freezer) get your candy melts ready to melt. You can use vanilla or chocolate candy melts. Place candy melts and 3 tablespoons of peanut butter in a microwave-safe dish.
Melt together in 30-second intervals stirring after each, until the candy is melted.
Remove the pan with the cookie dough balls from the freezer, move the cookie dough balls closer together in a square or rectangle.
Pour the melted candy melts over the cookie dough balls.
Spread the melted candy over the cookie dough balls. Try to make use every one has some on it. Freeze until hard.
Look how cool the bottom looks!
Now, just break the bark into pieces.
If you enjoy cookie dough. I’m sure you are going to love this Cookie Dough Bark. It is chocolatey, peanut buttery, and generally fantastic! It is true, the rolling of the cookie dough balls is going to seem like it takes forever – but it is well worth the effort. If you have someone willing to help make this it would go super fast.
