These Black Forest Cookie Bars are the dreamiest combination of cherry and chocolate I have ever had!
This easy recipe for Black Forest Cookie Bars is a fun and incredibly scrumptious take on the traditional black forest cake. The flavors and textures in this festive dessert will make you swoon!
I have never been a huge fan of cherry desserts. I love the fruit itself, but I never cared much for cherry pie, ice cream, or even cherry chocolate cookies. I don’t know why.
These bars have completely changed my feelings for cherry desserts. I can tell you with complete honesty that this is one of the best things I have ever made or eaten in my life! Seriously!
The base of these bars is a fudge brownie like cookie that will make you sing! Quite delicious all on it’s own, but I didn’t stop there. I topped the chocolate base with cherries, chocolate chips, marshmallows, and condensed milk. The cherries mix with the condensed milk, turning it the prettiest pink and giving it a soft, sweet cherry flavor. The result is a gooey, cherry chocolate delight that will have even the cherry naysayers back for seconds!
Step aside, Black Forest Cake, these Black Forest Cookie Bars are taking over!
