Chubby Hubby Cookie Bars

I love me some Ben and Jerry's... Who am I kidding, I like all kinds of ice cream! But, Ben and Jerry's is more compact so I don't feel as guilty eating the whole thing.

Some of my favorite flavors are Banana Split, Phish Food, and always... ALWAYS Chubby Hubby.

There's just something about the pairing of sweet and salty that rocks my world.

So, I thought I would throw all of the flavors of the ice cream into these delicious cookie bars...

So. So. SOOOO good!

You will need:
(makes 16 bars)
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 bag Reese's minis, chopped (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup chopped pretzels

For the top:
1/2 cup whole or halved pretzels
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line an 8" square baking dish with parchment paper, spray with cookie spray, and set aside.
In a large bowl (or your stand mixer) beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla. and beat until incorporated.
Add in the flour and salt and beat just until combined, do not over mix.
Stir in the chopped Reese's and pretzels.

Spread the cookie dough into the prepared pan and top with the whole/halved pretzels, pushing lightly to set on the top.

Bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes or until the center is set, the top lightly golden, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow the cookie bars to cool completely in the pan. Melt chocolate and oil together in your microwave or double broiler until smooth and shiny. Drizzle over the top of the cooled bars.
Slice into about 16 bars and serve!

Enjoy these delicious chewy bars that have a kick of sweet and salty flavor. PS: What's your favorite ice cream?
