You just can't go wrong with chocolate chip cookies.  And you especially can't go wrong with them when you pair them up with another dessert favorite.  Like brownies ... for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies.  Or a dip in chocolate ... for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles.

Or how about cheesecake for these super easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars?

These bars are one of my favorite go-to easy sweet treats.  Taking advantage of store-bought refrigerated cookie dough, they come together really quickly with minimal effort, taste great, and ... most importantly ... seem to be loved by all.

With a layer of creamy cheesecake sandwiched between two layers of chocolate chip cookies, what's not to love?  Believe me, if you love both sweet treats on their own, you'll love them just as much or more together.

Not a fan of store-bought cookie dough?  You could certainly make a batch of homemade dough to use instead.  Then just roll the dough into a log shape and follow the steps of the recipe as usual.  No problem.
