  • 2 (16 ounces each) rolls refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 3 ½ cups chocolate chips
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13” baking pan with foil or parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Gather your ingredients.
  • Place bananas and sugar cookie dough in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. You can also use a hand mixer or just use a wooden spoon.
  • Beat cookie dough and bananas until smooth. Stir in 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips. Press into prepared pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Place remaining 2 cups chocolate chips and heavy whipping cream in a microwave safe bowl or measuring cup. Heat for 1 minute on high power, then whisk until smooth. Pour over cooled bars, then chill to set frosting.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
