I made them with Little Buddy a couple of days ago when he asked me if we could make cookies. I love to surprise him with taking things just a touch over the top every once in a while to keep him thinking his Mama is the best ever.

Maybe I have issues, but at least I’m owning up to them.

Basically, I started with my favorite chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe, and then just pressed it into the bottom of a parchment lined kitchen sheet pan. I let the parchment hang over the side of the sheet pan by about two inches on either side so that I could easily remove them from the sheet pan for cutting and dipping.

While my bars baked, I assembled a couple of bowls of things to top the ends after they’d been dipped in milk chocolate. I raided the Halloween candy stash and found Snickers, Rolos, and Twix bars. Then, I pulled out some roasted pecan halves, sprinkles, and a few chocolate chips from the pantry. These are the items that I had on hand, but you could use whatever you have on hand or prefer to use.

Once I removed the bars from the oven and allowed them to cool a bit, I melted my chocolate in the microwave and cut the bars into – well, bars. Using my bench scraper, I divided the sheet pan in half lengthwise and then began cutting the bars about two inches wide across the width of the pan.

Then, we began dipping each bar in the milk chocolate and then topping them with candies, chocolate, or nuts that we’d assembled. Once each bar had been dipped and decorated, we placed them back on a sheet of parchment paper to dry.  Well, a few were eaten on the spot, but most of them made it back to the parchment paper, let’s just say.
