1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated chocolate chip cookies dough
2 cups coarsely chopped sandwich cookies like Oreos (about 16 cookies)
2 cups total baking morsels (chocolate, peanut butter, vanilla, butterscotch)
1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice (mixed nuts would be good)
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13×9-inch pan with foil, extending foil over edges, and spray with cooking spray.

2:  Break up cookie dough and press dough evenly in bottom of pan. Bake 15 minutes.

3:  Mix all the other ingredients in a bowl to create the topping mixture and reserve about a cup of that.  Sprinkle the remaining topping over the cookie crust.

4:  Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over the toppings then sprinkle the reserved cup of topping mixture over the sweetened condensed milk.

5:  Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until center is set and edges are golden brown. Cool completely, about 2 hours. Use foil to lift from pan then pull foil edges away. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.

Darlene’s Tips: You can alter this recipe any way you want. You can use any flavor cookie dough.  You can add any variation of the ingredients that you like. You could use several different flavors of crushed cookies and they do not have to be sandwich cookies.  You can use all the flavors of baking chips or just one. It’s up to you!  Add other stuff as desired like raisins, shredded coconut, pieces of caramel candy, miniature marshmallows, whatever you can think up!  Just aim for 4 to 5 cups total of topping ingredients.
