3 Ingredient Dessert Bars

If you are looking for a quick and easy dessert this holiday season, you have come to the right place!  My 3 ingredient dessert bars are great for those busy nights that are bound to happen this November and December.  With 3 ingredients: brownie batter, cookie dough, and chocolate frosting you can’t go wrong! One great thing about these bars is that you can make them as easy or as hard as you would like.  You could use your favorite brownie or cookie dough recipe (or use a mix like I did).  Or is your aunt’s cousin’s uncle makes a too die for chocolate frosting then by all means use that!  I’m showing you the easiest and fastest way to get this dessert from pantry to table!  Plus the combinations are endless!  You could use peanut butter cookie dough, or make blondies instead of brownies, you could use cream cheese frosting.   You will thank me.


I used the Betty Crocker trio seen above.

You will need to mix up your brownie mix and cookie dough mix per package directions.


Then just start pouring and ploping into the pan.  Pour prepared brownie mix into a 9×13 baking dish.  Then plop the cookie dough all around.  Bake it off for about 35mins.


Once cooled, cover with chocolate frosting.


The cookies and brownies together are decadent, but then cover the whole thing in chocolate frosting?  Your welcome.
