I used to make all my sugar cookies in cute shapes with fun colors.
But that takes a lot of time with all the rolling, cutting, coloring, and frosting. And then there are the sprinkles! Don’t get me wrong because I love the sprinkle part of the cookie. But after spending all that time in the kitchen, sprinkles tend to go flying in all directions because you just want to be done. Oh…maybe that’s just me 😉
Then I discovered sugar cookie bars…and I haven’t looked at another cookie cutter since then.
I’m sure there will come a day when I need to pull out my box of cute cookie cutters, but until then our sugar cookies are staying square.
Recently I made these Eggnog Sugar Cookie Bars, and I knew I wanted another version that wasn’t so holiday related.
Chocolate is always a good option, so I had to go with it. And of course mint is always a great choice to pair with it.
Easy chocolate sugar cookie dough gets pressed into a pan and baked for 15 minutes. Do not over bake the cookie bars! Let them cool before spreading on your mint frosting goodness.
I found a bag of Andes Mint chips hiding in the back of my baking cupboard! Woo hoo! Gotta love a find like that!
Forget the sprinkles on these cookie bars…these mint chips are all I need. Does anyone else eat those by the handfuls? I try to resist them but, well, you know. A few handfuls may have disappeared…
I just love the dollar spot at Target…my wallet not so much! Last week I found these cute stickers and twine. They were the perfect little accents for these white boxes I found in my hall closet. Yes, I’m a closet hoarder. We won’t talk about what else I may have found in my boxes while I was digging.
Oh, yeah I also found that cute polkadot box liner at Target too. They are actually little paper bags that were in the party section. Rip them apart and they make great filler paper!
A plastic bag tied up with twine and a little rustic bow is all the cookies need to stay fresh in the cutesy box. Perfect little treat to gift a special friend with!
