Tips: My daughter picked this recipe out of a Betty Crocker Magazine that has wonderful pictures of each cookie. It was fun to make with her (she's 3) because she could press the cookie mix into the pan, help me spread the frosting and help drizzle the chocolate glaze. These bars are very sweet so a small piece goes a long way. You can almost always find a print or online coupon for the Betty Crocker cookie mix. As always, I used my KitchenAid Stand Mixer to do all the mixing work. I also shared this recipe at All the Small Stuff's Tuesdays at the Table & Diary of a Stay at Home Mom's Cooking Thursday.
