This is going to spoil you compared to all the other candy barks out there. The secret to Cookie Dough Bark is, of course, that tender, melt-in-your-mouth, chocolate-filled cookie dough, made safe to eat with pre-baked flour and no eggs. While that’s the heart of Cookie Dough Bark, the bark part comes from a layer of indulgent chocolate on one side and a drizzle of even more chocolate on the other. It’s cookies and candy coming together to make you smile; that’s the charm and sweet tooth satisfaction of Cookie Dough Bark!

Step 2 –Line a 10×15-inch pan with wax paper.

Step 3 –Spread the flour out on a baking tray.

Step 13 –Spread the cookie dough mixture over the hardened chocolate in an even layer.

Step 14 –Let the cookie dough set over the chocolate, about 15-30 minutes.
