The next time you're at the end of an exceptionally rough week, we'd definitely recommend whipping up a batch of these kitchen sink cookie bars. The perfect decadent balance of salty and sweet, these chewy treats are here to satisfy all junk food cravings. We loaded them up with peanut butter, chocolate chips, pretzels, Oreos, potato chips, and M&M’s, but feel free to experiment with swapping in some of your favorite snacks and flavors.
1 3/4 cups (about 7 1/2 oz.) all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup (4 oz.) unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
2/3 cup crumbled pretzels
6 cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos), crushed
1 1/4 cups crumbled ruffled potato chips, divided
1/3 cup, plus 2 Tbsp. candy-coated chocolate pieces (such as M&M’S), divided
How to Make It
Whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl. Combine brown sugar, butter, and granulated sugar in the bowl of a heavy-duty electric stand mixture; beat on medium speed until creamy, about 3 minutes. Add peanut butter, egg, and vanilla; beat until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture; beat until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips, pretzels, chocolate sandwich cookies, 1 cup of the potato chips, and 1/3 cup of the candy-coated chocolate pieces.
Press dough evenly into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch rimmed baking sheet. Top evenly with remaining 1/4 cup potato chips and 2 tablespoons candy-coated chocolate pieces. Bake in preheated oven until light golden brown, 20 to 23 minutes. Let stand at least 20 minutes before cutting into bars.
