Peppermint Patty Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.

York Peppermint Patty Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars. Soft, chewy, and gooey! Recipe at sallysbakingaddiction.com

I first made these cookie bars last year around Christmas time. My family went completely bonkers for them.  My friend Erin’s eyes completely lit up as she tasted one.  Kevin says they are the best thing I’ve ever made. As I cut them into squares, I couldn’t stop “tasting” the crumbs.

They are downright addicting.

I made these stuffed cookie bars again this past weekend for two reasons. First… look at them. The melty peppermint filling is an obvious excuse to make them again. And again. And again.

Second, I went a little crazy buying Halloween candy this year and have been on the prowl for recipes to use up all my extras.  I don’t get any trick-or-treaters at my apartment.

To start, mix up a quick chocolate chip cookie dough recipe.  While it’s a pretty fool-proof and basic recipe, you could always use store-bought cookie dough instead.  I definitely prefer the homemade recipe below – it’s chewy, soft, and just tastes better.  Doesn’t everything taste better homemade?

I only used 1 and 1/4 cups of mini chocolate chips in the cookie dough because there is extra chocolate going into the middle layer with the peppermint patties.  I didn’t want the chocolate to overpower the mint OR the cookie dough base itself.

Layer half of the cookie dough into the baking pan and arrange the peppermint patties on top.  I layered in as many peppermint patties as humanly possible – I didn’t want a single bite to be without!  The middle layer equaled about 26 peppermint patties – the amount in your typical 11-ounce bag.  You could always use Junior Mints in this recipe as well.  Been there, done that. Just as tasty.

Top the peppermint patty layer with the rest of the cookie dough and press down evenly. While the cookie bars bake, the peppermint patties melt all over inside the two cookie layers. Melty peppermint patties.  Does it get any better?!

Bake for 38-40 minutes and allow to cool COMPLETELY before cutting into squares.  Waiting is the hardest part!  Smelling the finished cookie bars and waiting for them to completely cool before digging in… pure torture.

Consider yourself warned: things will get messy if you cut the bars while they’re still warm. I have the patience of a three year old, so I put the pan in the refrigerator to cool things down quickly.  After I neatly cut myself a square, I warmed it back up in the microwave. Serving suggestion – cut the bars while they’re cold, eat the bars warm!

With all the melty chocolate and drippy peppermint goo, I was not able to stop at one square.  That says a lot coming from a gal who has dessert A.D.D.  I’m usually eager for the next dessert recipe.  But with these? No! I never wanted the pan to end.

 What may just be the simplest recipe idea ever – stuffing peppermint patties inside cookies – has proven to be one of the best desserts I’ve EVER made.

With an archive FULL of cookies/brownies/bars/cupcakes… that’s impressive! You’re welcome.

York Peppermint Patty Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Soft & chewy chocolate chip cookie bars stuffed with York Peppermint Patties

Yield: 24 bars

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes, plus cooling

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) butter, softened to room temperature (if using salted butter, omit added salt below)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar (or dark brown)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 and 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 11 ounce bag York Peppermint Patties (about 26)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 11x7 baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric or stand mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until well combined. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients slowly to the wet ingredients. By hand, fold in the chocolate chips until fully combined. Do not overmix.
  3. Press down 1/2 of the cookie dough into prepared baking pan. Place unwrapped peppermint patties over the bottom dough layer. Top the remaining half of cookie dough over the peppermint patties, pressing to evenly flatten down. Bake for 38-40 minutes or until baked through and the edges are brown. (Mine took exactly 38 minutes.)
  4. Allow the cookie bars to cool completely (about 1 hour) before cutting into squares. Bars keep well in an airtight container for up to 7 days.

    Well my BF LOVESSSSS peppermint patties so I am making these for him now. However, Your chewy chocolate chunk cookies are probably my favorite things in the world. So I decided to use that as my cookie base. I am on the stage of chilling the cookie dough. I am curious why you didnt use your amazing chocolate chip cookie recipe instead?? Just curious…. :) Thank you!!

      Hi Amanda! I hadn’t yet developed that cookie recipe when I made these peppermint patty bars. ;) And this cookie recipe is perfect for making bars. So is the recipe you are using, of course. There is probably no need to chill the dough though. I chill that cookie dough when I make cookies so the cookies will not spread as much. You don’t have to worry about that with a pan of bars.

      I love those caramel apple cinnamon rolls! I’m happy you liked them too Willow.

      After 8 mints would actually be just fine. You won’t have that gooey center that melted York Peppermint Patties have, but it will still be so delicious, I guarantee it!

    I looked for Yorks on Halloween clearance and there was none, so I picked up some Rolos on sale. I’m going to substitute them and see how that goes!

    Hi Sally, first, thank you for your blog, your recipes, for the entire package. I’ve never before developed an interest in blogs, mainly because they don’t usually offer intuitive links and sidebars helping me understand content, or providing useful suggestions. Because you seamlessly anticipate what I might want to know, in addition to whatever subject I’m reading about, I’m in love with your work. Also, it helps that the pictures are gorgeous AND you pay attention to grammar and spelling. Your attention to detail is very much appreciated.

    Now, my question. I baked these in a dark bottomed, non-stick pan, removing them from the oven after 29 minutes – they were already starting to brown around the edges. They turned out picture perfect and tasted fantastic. I wonder though, did I jump the gun and take them out too early? Would they have likely burned had I let them go the full 38 minutes? If it helps, I greased the pan with Crisco, instead of cooking spray and used salted butter rather than unsalted, omitting the salt.

    Thanks so much, and keep it up!

      Hey Stacey! Thank you so much for the lovely comments about my blog and my writing. That really means a lot to me! For these cookie bars – all ovens are different. Perhaps your cookie bars don’t need the full 38 minutes. And it sounds like they were pretty darn good at the 30 minutes in your oven. You could always cover loosely with aluminum foil to prevent heavy browning too soon.

        Thanks so much Sally. You’re right about ovens – we got the one I’m now using about a year ago and I’m still adapting to its quirks! 30 minutes was magic, so that’ll be what I go with next time – which will be VERY SOON! Take care, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    I loved the peppermint patties, but have moved on to mint creme oreos. I also found i needed to increase the intredients to get the entire pan properly covered on both levels.

    Is it okay to use regular sized chocolate chips? I cannot face the thought of going to a grocery store the day before Thanksgiving. I forgot to buy mini chips.

        Thank you for your quick reply! I hope you have a lovely holiday.
        Should I use the same amount of regular sized chips as stated in the recipe for the mini chips? Thank you!
        I can’t wait to try this recipe-It looks delicious!
