I love to try new dessert recipes...and so does my family! We really enjoy these chocolate chip cookie bars dressed up with strawberries and a fluffy white- chocolate mixture.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • TOPPING:
  • 2 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup whipped topping
  • 2 cups halved fresh strawberries
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, well drained
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
  2. Spread into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine white chocolate and milk. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 30-60 seconds or until chocolate is melted. Stir until smooth; set aside. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Gradually beat in white chocolate mixture. Fold in whipped topping. Spread over crust.
  4. Arrange strawberries and oranges over the top. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and butter; stir until smooth. Drizzle over fruit. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until chilled. Cut into bars.
