Gingerbread Chocolate Chip Bars
It’s not Christmas yet so we’re still pumping out great holiday dessert recipes!

And this is an easy one, once again!

It starts with 1 box of Betty Crocker Gingerbread Cake/Cookie Mix and 1 pouch of Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix (or double chocolate chip cookie mix).

I am not sure if another brand would work – you could definitely give it a try.

Simple steps – mix the gingerbread dough and mix the cookie dough separately and combine them in 1 pan. Yum.

Two different cookie doughs combined in one pan. I love making bar cookies so I'm not taking time to keep swapping baking sheets in the oven.

Ingredients

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix or Double Chocolate Chip Mix, 17.5 oz
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 large egg

Gingerbread Dough

  • 1 box Betty Crocker gingerbread cake/cookie mix, 14.5 oz
  • ½ cup butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 large egg

Instructions
 

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F (350 degrees F for dark or nonstick pans).
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the chocolate chip dough ingredients until a soft dough forms. In a second medium bowl, stir together the gingerbread dough ingredients until soft dough forms.
  • Butter the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan, then spoon heaping spoonfuls of the chocolate chip dough about 2 inches apart. Repeat with gingerbread dough, placing spoonfuls of dough between the chocolate chip dough.
  • Press dough into an even layer.
  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool completely, about 45 minutes and cut into bars.
