Dark Chocolate Cookie Butter Blondie Bars

Dark Chocolate Cookie Butter Blondie Bars ~ I can hardly believe that in just a few days, Santa arrives! Are you all ready for the big day? I am not! However; somehow, someway, it will all be finished before the 25th.

This is such a fun, but busy time of the year. I love to bake and have already made a big batch of Pecan & Cranberry Sandies, as well as a large pan of Christmas themed Hello Dolly Squares.

I was looking for one more sweet to have tucked away in the freezer when I came across this recipe for Dark Chocolate Cookie Butter Blondie Bars. C’mon, just reading the name of the recipe I can tell they will be totally decadent!

Another thing that I often like to do when I have baked is to package up a few treats for family or friends. The gift of baking is perfect for anyone who otherwise would have no home cooking to enjoy. It is a gift from the heart and it’s easy to wrap up a batch for someone you love.

Chocolate, more chocolate and butter. You know these bars will be amazing! I may, or may not have stuck my finger into that glorious stream of molten chocolate!
