Do you have left-over chocolate bars?? Bake some Chocolate Bar Cookies!!

This cookie recipe, Chocolate Bar Cookies, is just so delicious! You use chopped up chocolate bars instead of chocolate chips so every cookie is just a bit different if you use a variety of chocolate bars!

The recipe is from Martha Stewart, I printed it off in 2006!! The recipe is called Candy Bar Cookies, but here In Canada we call them chocolate bars I think, or at least I do!

I used up some left-over Halloween mini chocolate bars to make these cookies. You can use any chocolate bar you personally like! I used some Kit Kat bars, Coffee Crisp, Aero, Reeses thin cups & Smarties!! You need 1 1/4 cup chopped chocolate bars for this recipe/. This is a great recipe since you can really customize it to whatever you like & it can be different each time you make it!

This recipe is quick to mix up so you can have cookies in a hurray!

Here is the recipe for Chocolate Bar Cookies This recipe made 57 cookies using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop


1/2 cup room temperature butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 tsp salt ( I use salted butter so I leave this out)

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

2 cups oats, you can use quick oats or old-fashioned oats

1 1/2 cups chopped chocolate bars

1 cup chopped nuts, you can use walnuts or pecans or leave the out if you prefer no nuts!


Preheat oven to 350f. line cookie sheets with parchment paper or you can grease them This recipe will make 3 cookie sheets of cookies

  1. In a mixer or using a hand blender, beat the butter, sugar & oil together until well combined, remember to scrape sown the sides of the bowl with a spatula so all of the ingredients get combined!
  2. Add the beaten egg & vanilla & mix well
  3. Use a fork to mix the flour & baking soda together, the add this to the egg mixture, mix, scrape the sides of the bowl, until you don’t see any flour
  4. Mix in the oats, chopped chocolate bars & the chopped nuts. You can do this by hand if you want. I used my mixer on the slowest speed for this .
  5. Drop approx 1 tbsp size balls onto the prepared baking sheets, I used a 1 tbsp cookie scoop. Bake for approx 10-12 minutes but you have to watch them to make sure they do not overtake. Every one is so different ! ( one tray of mine was cooked at 12 min & the other trays took about 14 min!!)
  6. Let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for a minute or two before removing them to a cooling rack to cool completely!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
