Sugar Cookie Seven Layer Bars

Sugar Cookie Seven Layer BarsAs a slightly insane food blogger, it’s my civic duty to report to you guys about the latest food products on the market.

So without further adieu, FRENCH TOAST CRUNCH CEREAL IS BACK!!! 

If I could somehow scream this through a megaphone, you bet your cute booty I would. I am so excited, people. I’ve waited years for this glorious reunion of miniature toast-shaped cereal flavored with maple and cinnamon.

But while on the hunt for this iconic 90’s throwback, I stumbled upon some other doozy products I just had to buy… AKA, what happens every time I shop at Target. (No wonder I’m always so broke).

First up: Sugar Cookie PopTarts. I mean, really? It’s like the folks at PopTarts just get me, you know? Shoving sugar cookie dough inside of a pastry and calling it breakfast… if only I could get a guy to think the same philosophy and I’ll put a ring on it.

Next: Sugar Cookie Peeps. I know Peeps are a love-it-or-leave-it food, but I happen to love them. Along with Sugar Cookie, I also spotted Hot Chocolate, Red Velvet (!!) and Peppermint. Yes, jump in my cart and take my damn money.

But after pushing my cart full of sugar cookie Peeps & PopTarts around, an idea gave birth in mah brain. What about Sugar Cookie Seven Layer Bars?! It was a brilliant idea that had to happen… and that was promptly eaten in one sitting. Sorrynotsorry.

Well, royal icing gives me the heeby jeebies and after numerous failed attempts, has made me moderately homicidal, so we compromised with these bars that pack the sugar cookie punch without the hassle of cut-outs and royal icing murder.}

Seven layers of sugar cookie heaven, packed into one glorious bar! No need to hassle over cut-out sugar cookies since these pack the sugar cookie punch in a convenient cookie bar that everyone will love.
Ingredients
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • About 5 Sugar Cookie Pop Tarts
  • 1 (12-cookie count) pkg refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • About 12 baked sugar cookies, roughly chopped
  • 2 pkgs Sugar Cookie Peeps, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • Sugar, for sprinkling on top (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13x9" baking pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Mist the foil liberally with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, egg, melted butter and vanilla until a soft dough has formed. Spread the dough into the prepared pan in an even layer and bake for 12 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the oven but keep the oven on. Gently lay the Pop Tarts across the surface of the dough in an even layer, breaking Pop Tarts to fit if needed. Top the Pop Tarts layer with pieces of sugar cookie dough, the chopped sugar cookies, the chopped Peeps candies, and the white chocolate chips as evenly as possible. Drizzle evenly with the sweetened condensed milk.
  4. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 18-20 minutes or until the top is lightly golden and the center appears just about set. Sprinkle with additional sugar if desired. Cool in the pan completely, then gently lift the bars out of the pan using the foil sides and cut into squares. I like letting my bars sit overnight for an easier cut.

Have a fantastical day!!

      Hi Nancy, they’re a seasonal flavor of Peeps candy. They’re so good! You can typically find them around Christmastime, but in the meantime, substitute regular flavored Peeps or mini marshmallows.

  6. aah ! I love sweets. Thanks for sharing……..
