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

2: Crumble cookie dough in medium bowl. Stir or knead in nutmeg until well mixed. Press evenly in bottom of foil-lined pan.

3: Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

4: Use foil to lift from pan. Trim crust edges from bar then cut into bars.

5: In small microwavable bowl, microwave baking morsels uncovered on High 1 minute, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.

4:  Dip 2 opposite corners of each square into melted chips, letting excess drip off. Place on cookie sheet and sprinkle corners with chopped nuts. Refrigerate about 10 minutes or until set. Store covered in refrigerator.

Darlene’s Tips: Use Confetti morsels for flecks of color! You can do this without the nutmeg if you prefer, or you could use any spice you like (extract would work too). This can also be done with any flavor of cookie dough (chocolate chip cookie dipped in melted peanut butter morsels sounds awesome!). Instead of the nuts or sprinkles, you could crumble up the leftover cookie crust and sprinkle that on the squares (or just eat the crusts… yum!!!). Want colorful cookies? Add a few drops of food coloring and knead that into the dough. You could even separate the dough to make several different colors in one batch. Have fun experimenting! Want an even easier treat? Use store bought cookies and dip those suckers into melted morsels! Quick and easy yet looks special!!!
