Sugar Cookie Bark


This sugar cookie bark is a combination candy and cookie dough – and will curb your sweet craving for sure!

I bet that, if you’re a blogger, I could say the name of an ingredient and you could immediately spout at least five things to make with it.

Like, if I shouted “REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS!” in a room at a food blogger conference I would immediately get responses like:

Stuffed Cupcakes!
Stuffed Cookies!
Ice Cream!
Rice Krispie Treats!

Am I right?

It would be like brainstorming gone mad.

But what about when the ingredient is the dessert? Makes it a little harder.

Like, for example, sugar cookies.

When I think “sugar cookie,” I think cute designs and royal icing. I think about Christmas.

{I mean, sure I think about pie crust too, doesn’t everyone?}

But if you want a treat that actually tastes like a sugar cookie, it’s a little harder.

My step-father-in-law (that’s a mouthful, let’s call him M), loves sugar cookies.

Like, really loves them.

So, every year for his birthday and Christmas I make him some.

But really, I can’t just make sugar cookies anymore.

{Except at Christmas. Not making them then would be sacrilege.}

In blog-land-life, when you make stuff like carrot cake cinnamon rolls and ICEE cupcakes, you can’t just make a sugar cookie a second time (says the little voice in my head).

Besides, I did that last year. But I made it a bar cookie.

So this year, when M’s birthday rolled around I was stumped.

And then I remembered Shelly’s Brownie Batter Bark.

And I realized how I’d create another good sugar rush for the man who can eat an entire batch of cookies without gaining an ounce.

Enter sugar cookie dough and white candy melts.

Add some sprinkles and you’ve got a super sweet sugar cookie dessert.

That’s not a sugar cookie.

But kinda is.

I can’t wait to try the other options for this.

I’m sure it involves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

And, maybe, pie.

Sugar Cookie Bark


  • 1 pouch sugar cookie mix
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 24 ounce package white candy melts
  • Sprinkles


  1. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper and set aside.
  2. Mix sugar cookie mix, butter, and milk in a medium bowl. Melt half your candy melts and spread in an even layer on cookie sheet. Top evenly with cookie dough and press to spread across candy, leaving an edge of candy around the dough. Chill for about 10 minutes.
  3. Melt remaining candy melts. Pour over top of chilled sugar cookie dough. Spread evenly to cover dough. Cover with sprinkles and chill until hardened. Break apart and enjoy!

Enjoy, and thanks for reading!
