Chocolate Fudge and Peanut Butter Chip Bar Cookies

A couple days ago I shared that I was testing our new stove with some baking. I made two different sheets of bar cookies: Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bar Cookies was the recipe I shared a couple days ago. Today I am sharing  the other kind of bar cookie I made. These are actually a reverse of the first ones. Instead of peanut butter cookies, these are chocolate fudge cookies and instead of chocolate chips, this cookie has peanut butter chips. Bar cookies are so easy to make and they can be in the oven within minutes.

Both cookies tasted great, but this one was my favorite. I just love cookies that have a fudgy texture. They were great on their own, but were incredible with ice cream. Just imagine making an ice cream sandwich with these! Vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two of these bar cookies……AWESOME!
