Double Decker Gooey Cookie Bars - this easy bar cookie recipe uses two cookie mixes and combines them into one ultimate gooey bar!

Well, it’s that time of year again, the time when us moms are once again divided into two groups: the ones who are depressed that their kids are going back to school and sad they’re going to be away from them all day and the moms like me (the ones who are JUMPING FOR JOY that school started yesterday).

Which camp are you in?

Now, to be honest and fair, this summer was amazing. It was actually the best summer we’ve ever had. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m finally medicated (read: happy) or if it’s because I kept Jordan so darn busy that she didn’t have time to get very bored. She only did two camps, but we did several little trips and I hosted more playdates and sleepovers than I could count. We shopped too much and ate way too much, but all in all it was a really fun 8 weeks…

…And now it’s time for her to go back to where she belongs: school. I will not cry at drop off. I will not mourn my days without her. I will not count down the minutes until pick-up time. I will cheer as I drive away, I will workout as long as I want without feeling guilty, I will work all day without feeling guilty, and I will eat a lunch of my choosing all alone while I watch The View without being interrupted or having food stolen off my plate.

It will be heaven. And along with that heaven? Is a hefty dose of these!

DOUBLE DECKER cookie gooey bars are made of two kinds of cookie doughs and filled with gooey sweetened condensed milk and chocolate!!

Easy Double Decker Gooey Cookie Bars Recipe

As you all know I’m a sucker for gooey bar recipes and I love Krusteaz mixes. You may think about them for pancake mix or muffin mix, but did you know they make some of the BEST cookie mixes? I’ve tried every single flavor and they all taste as good as homemade – if not better.

I decided to have fun with two kinds cookie mix when I made these bars: Triple Chocolate Chunk and Double Peanut Butter. I mixed up both batches according to the package directions, and then I sandwiched them with a bag of chocolate chunks and a can of sweetened condensed milk.

These are rich, chocolatey, fudgy, gooey, and PURE Heaven. If you don’t believe me, you’ll have to try them for yourself!

Pick two of your favorites and make a deliciously ooey gooey bar! Do it while the kids are at school and then they’ll have no idea and you won’t have to share! 🙂

  1. I’m definitely a huge fan of them being in school all day. It’s good for them, dangit. Why would I want them hanging onto Mommy all day? The whole point is to get them ready to be their own people. That said, I love the cuddles at night.
    Have fun being on your own again! If I weren’t a teacher myself, I’d probably be a little more psyched about the year starting.
    These are phenomenal. I love Krusteaz!

  2. Omg, you had me at double decker! These bars sound incredible!

  3. O <—– if you made that in 2,000 point type it's what my mouth looks like right now, in amazement.

  4. They look SO GOOD! You are the gooey bar queen! Love these and that you can make them with any flavor of dough.

    And going back to school, it’s Monday for us. I have to say my summer went by in a whirlwind and I hardly remember anything other than a home remodel and thank god for her iphone because it was the best babysitter ever 🙂

  5. I am excited for the kids to go back to school. It will be weird packing lunches again though. If I packed your gooey bars in my daughter’s lunchbox, she would be the envy of the entire lunch period!

  6. I could use one or three of these right now! 🙂

  7. These gooey bars are sure to be a lunchbox knockout!

    Thanks for sharing your anxiety story. I am going through one of the worst depressions of my life, though I feel I’m finally reaching the other side. I was really sick for a year before my husband finally took me to my doctor to get some antidepressants. It’s made a huge difference in our lives, I’m so glad I finally realized I needed help. And I’m so glad you’re feeling better as well! Long distance hugs.

  8. I’m in the “yahoo” camp.  I think I hurt her feelings, though, when I said that now I understand that old Christmas carol line ..”and Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again”.  These gooey treats gave me a sugar high just looking at the photo.  Wow!

  9. we had a great summer too, but I am with you and SO happy they are back in school!! more gooey bars for me

  10. I hear you on the glad for school thing – I’m ready for pre-11pm bedtimes and routine! I’ve enjoyed the extra kiddo time, but like you,excited to have time to work out,do errands,  and work without feeling the need to cram it all in as short a time as possible!  Recipe looks yummy!! Cheers to a new school year! 

  11. these are the absolute best gooey bars I’ve ever seen–OHMYLORD

  12. Hi! These look amazing, but I’m not surprised….all of your recipes look AND taste amazing. 🙂 I was wondering if you think I could make these with cookie dough made from scratch. I wasn’t able to find the Krusteaz mix, but want to try these now! 😉 I just didn’t know if I should alter the regular cookie dough recipes in any way…perhaps to make them denser. ?? Thanks so much for the recipes and your help. 🙂
