FAQs Making Cookie Dough Bars

Q: Are Cookie Dough bars safe to eat raw? 

A: Yes! You’ll use no raw egg in this cookie dough recipe. You can bake the raw flour before adding it to the recipe to kill any bacteria. 


Q: Can I add in other flavor mix-ins? 

A: Absolutely! This recipe is very flexible to let you make it your own! Keep in mind, some mix-ins may change the smooth, even texture of the dough bars, but they’ll still be yummy! Try adding in marshmallows, rice krispies, peanut butter chips, toffee bits, nuts, crushed cookies, or your own favorite treats. 


Q: The frosting layer of my No-Bake Cookie Dough Bars never set, can you help? 

A: If your frosting ends up too thin or runny, you can decrease the amount of cream (or add more chocolate melts) to help thicken up the frosting. This frosting layer will need to be chilled to set. 


Q: How do I store no bake cookie dough bars? 

A: These no bake cookie dough bars can be safely stored at room temperature, but they will be a softer texture. If you want them to be firm and easier to handle, store them in the fridge.

This looks so yummy! I just have to tell you, though, there is a typo in the cookie dough bar recipe. Step one says "softened bugger" instead of "butter" LOL!!

U would love to try these out this week! Do they freeze well??

The base of the recipe is just cookies and frosting, so it should freeze just fine. I've not tried to freeze mine, though, they never last around long enough to freeze them. If you try it, come back and let me know how it went so I can update the post!

My frosting never set properly! I used the same portions but it always seemed too runny, any idea what went wrong here?

LOVE the recipe otherwise though! The cookie dough is PERFECT!
