It's a chocolate? It's a cookie? It's a chocolate cookie!

You know when you don’t know if you feel like having a chocolate bar or a cookie? Well, this might solve that problem!

It’s a chocolate bar made out of chocolate cookie dough!

This idea came to me when I had some sugar cookie dough left. I decided to add a bit of cocoa powder to the dough and shape it as a chocolate bar.

As for the sugar cookie recipe I like to use this or this, but your favourite recipe will work as great, just add a bit cocoa powder and you’re set!

To shape the cookies, roll out the dough and cut it in rectangles. Use a wood skewer to make the indentations that will form the typical squares of a chocolate bar. Bake them according to the recipe you’re using.

I’ve made them in 2 sizes: small ones (the size of normal cookies) and big ones (almost the size of a chocolate bar), and both worked out great. Next time I think I might cover them in actual chocolate or use royal icing to make a fake wrapper, just to add some charm but even “naked”, I think they’re quite cute!

It's the perfect chocolate bar to take to the beach, it doesn't melt in the sun!

They are very cute plain but do think they'll be even cuter with a "wrapper".

This is so cute, what a great idea! I'm baking for a 5th birthday party in a few weeks and I might just use your idea... hope you don't mind!

How neat, I love it! You could wrap it in foil and a homemade "chocolate bar sleeve" and give them as gifts. That would be cute.

Adam said...

Ha, I can totally picture you making up a large foil wrapper. You're like a sweeter, not too crazy version of Wily Wonka :)

Great idea, and I'd love to see them covered in chocolate. Remember those candy bar commercials with the flowing chocolate? What ever happened to those?

This is so cute and totally genius!! I am going to make these and take this with us for the kids while we are out. Marking them like that should make it easy to break apart while we are shopping!

You never cease to amaze me!!!
