NOTE: I get messages asking me why I post these types of recipes while I’m following a zero carb animal kingdom only food plan.  My answer is because I’m following ZC, but I bet you’re not! Just because I eat a certain way does not mean I have to limit myself to sharing only meat recipes. I’m not the carb police! lol

Holiday Swirl Bars Recipe


1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookies
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/4 cup red candy melts or coating wafers
1/4 cup white candy melts or coating wafers

Darlene’s Tip:  You do not have to use Pillsbury brand cookie dough. And I’m thinking you could use chocolate chip cookie dough instead.  Also, you might want to add some green sugar sprinkles on top of the chocolate to make them look more Christmasy!


Step 1:  Heat oven to 350°F. Line 9-inch square pan with foil, leaving enough to hang over edges of pan. Spray bottom and sides of foil with cooking spray. Press cookie dough evenly in bottom of pan. Bake 28 to 30 minutes or until edges and center are set and light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes.

Step 2:  Meanwhile, in small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High 45 seconds; stir. Continue heating for 15-second intervals until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in peppermint extract. Spread on top of warm cookie base, spreading to within 1/4 inch of edges.

Step 3:  In two separate small microwavable bowls, microwave candy melts uncovered on Medium (50%) 1 minute; stir. Continue heating for 20-second intervals, until candy melts can be stirred smooth; transfer to 2 separate small resealable food-storage plastic bags. Cut small corner off each bag, and squeeze teaspoonfuls of alternating colors onto melted chocolate layer. Using knife or metal spatula, cut through melted chocolate and candy melts to create swirled marble design. Firmly tap pan on counter to create a smooth surface.

Step 4:  Allow bars to cool completely, about 2 hours or until chocolate topping is set. To serve, remove bars from pan, and cut into 4 rows by 4 rows.
