Cookie Dough Billionaire Bars

cdbillionRemember that time when your boob popped out at the gym?

No?  Is that just me?  Go figure.

Why is the gym some super hotspot for me to have embarrassing things happen?   Deep down, I think it’s the universe’s way of saying don’t go to the gym because really, most mortals don’t have these weird-o things just happen to them consecutively.

Anywaaaay.  So I was doing my usual floor exercises/stretches/bullsh*t when I decided I wanted to do a plank.  Why not, I thought.  Planking seems like the perfectly logical thing to do while working out.

While this thought was being born, I was doing toe-touches and because of my lack of pockets I had ingeniously lodged my iPod into my bra for safekeeping.

After toe-touches I got down into planking position and was dying doin’ my thang when a horrid song came on.  I don’t really know why I have terrible songs on my iPod, but I’m assuming it’s because any song is horrid if it isn’t the one I’m playing on repeat.  And also because I have a terrible taste in music.

So naturally, I am unable to do anything when a bad song is on, so I reached for my iPod to quickly banish said-awful song from my ears when, kaboom.. boob.

During this exercise mishegas, my iPod had, er, stuck to me, and without thinking, I just pulled it out thinking everything was jim dandy buuuuut, my lady lump fell out with it.

S0o0o0o0o there I was, planking and sweaty, with a boob just chillin’, and a horrible song in my ears, and about 3476283468234 people surrounding me.  It was the perfect equation for oh my god this is my life what the hell.

This has absolutely zero to do with these billionaire bars except I’m pretty sure this kind of thing doesn’t happen to billionaires since billionaires can usually afford workout clothes with iPod pockets.  Or their own home gym.  Or you know, just have their favorite band perform while they do lunges.  Dammit, why do rich people have everything?!

Everything except gymboob stories.  And cookie dough billionaire bars.

DSC_2283AIf we’re being honest, I have no idea why these are called billionaire bars.  I’ve just seen them around the interwebs and realized it’s basically just cookie dough sitting on top of caramel sitting on top of a shortbread crust, and that sounds awesome.  I made them, and true to their genetic makeup, they are super duper superbly awesome.  And totally make me feel less omg embarrassed for the whole boobage thing.

I'm not sure why these bad boys are called 'billionaire bars' since I've never actually met a dessert worth as much as Oprah. Needless to say, these sinful treats are worth every bite.. and penny 🙂
Ingredients
  • 1 pkg refrigerated sugar cookie crust
  • 1 pkg Kraft caramel bits
  • 2 tsp heavy cream or milk
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp milk
  • 1 & ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 2 squares baking chocolate
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 13x9" baking pan with cooking spray. Unwrap the sugar cookie dough and press it evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  2. Bake the sugar cookie crust for approx. 15 minutes or until center appears set and top is lightly golden. Cool completely.
  3. In a medium saucepan, melt together the caramel bits and the 2 tsp heavy cream over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture has melted and is nice and smooth. Pour the mixture over the sugar cookie crust and spread to even out.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and sugars until creamy. Add the vanilla and milk, beat again. Lastly, gradually add the flour until a soft dough forms. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Spread the cookie dough mixture evenly on top of the caramel layer. Place in the fridge to set, about 2 hours. Before serving, melt the remaining baking chocolate and drizzle on top of the bars. Cut and eat!

DSC_2299AI brought these into work and they were gone within minutes.  I don’t blame my hungry coworkers– there’s something about sweet, crispy sugar cookie crust, gooey, smooth caramel and buttery, soft cookie dough that makes me weak in the knees, too!  And lucky for my coworkers, I didn’t even charge them per bar! 😉

Have a delicious day!

xo, Hayley

  1. It’s not just you. I was cycling home once and a huge gust of wind came along just as I was cycling past a guy on what was otherwise an quiet country lane. My skirt flew up and I flashed him my knickers.

  2. Ronalee Baronian says:

    This looks wonderful. But I just have to say your story is too funny not to comment on it. You gave me a laugh for the day. 😀

  3. Ah Hayley, that is the funniest story I have heard in a long time! Thank you for sharing!! See, this is why I avoid gyms! But these cookie dough billionaire bars are totally dreamy!

  4. Ohhhhhhh girl. I might have died. Was it low plank boobage at least?
    Love the billionaire bars!

  5. How on earth do you come up with these amazing combos!! All your desserts amaze me!! I need to make them all!

  6. Oh no! I’ve never had a boob slip (that I can remember…and I’m pretty sure I would remember it!), but I totally relate to horrible songs on your iPod. I drove home from my parents’ house yesterday (a 4 hour drive!), and had hooked up my iPod to the car, thinking it would be better than the radio. I think I skipped 87% of the songs. I’m like, “Why do I even have these songs on here if I never want to listen to them?”

    But, at least your have billionaire bars to console you! 🙂

  7. These look awesome! The gym story is hilarious. Probably not to you who had to live through it! Sorry!!

  8. Sorry for your mishap, but hey, it happens. These cookie dough bars look amazing, I would nom nom nom them all day.

  9. At least you didn’t face plant it on the treadmill because the lady next to you was going super duper fast so you decided to as well. AND face plant. I think we both need to drown our humiliation in these bars.

  10. Pffft – hah!
    & Get out – these sound sooo good! Howcome I’ve never had them??!!

  11. Ok I was totally waiting for this story. How horrifying! You need your own TV show. Also, billionaire bars are awesome!

  12. See, this is why I DON’T GO TO THE GYM. I have some awful stories of my own, and so…the gym and I stay far, far away from each other. BUT, I need to get my paws on some of these billionaire bars. Lovin’ the pictures, too – that last one with the teeth marks? Awesome!

  13. Hahhaha! I don’t even know if I should laugh at that story. I am so sorry! But these bars are definitely worth spending some time at the gym for.

  14. This is why I don’t DO the gym. I’d have my own gymboob story. Nah, better keep exercising in the safe habitat of home. Of course! Only you, Hayley, would create Cookie Dough Billionaire Bars! They look phenomenally good. Thanks for sharing!

  15. You poor baby!!! That is something that could (and potentially will) totally happen to me! Esp. because I often stick my iphone in my bra. Ugh.

    On the bright side….COOOOKIE DOOOOOUGH. I want to live with you. And have you feed me cookie dough things. Mkay?

  16. Oh Hayley! You just made me laugh and I SO needed a laugh right now! It sucks that that happened but now you have a totally awesome story to share with all of us 😉 These bars…O.M.G. Pinned and totally making to make myself feel better – even though my boob didn’t pop out at the gym 🙂

  17. I don’t know if I could have lived through that experience! I think it would take at least a couple batches of these bars!

  18. I love your gymboob story hahaha. I never had that problem but…..that was because I didn’t have boobs LOL Cookie dough….yes please!!

  19. We must go to the gym together soon. MUST.

    And these bars rock. I mean, no words. I need some!

  20. Not being an actual rich person myself, I’ve often wished it was socially acceptable to put out a tip jar next to the treats I bring in to work. Chocolate chips aren’t free, people. Also, the gym is lame. Don’t go there. You have my permission to work out at home where you don’t even have to wear a top if you don’t want to. And these bars look freakin’ awesome!

  21. Looks absolutely delicious as usual! 🙂

  22. Hey! I just wanted to aask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few
    months of hrd work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
