The beautiful thing about these bars is…. they stay chewy.  Unlike a cookie that can get crunchy and hard.  Of course you can’t overlook the creamy delicious frosting.  As good as the cookie is….IT’S ALL ABOUT THE FROSTING (for me anyway)!  Besides these cookies are done all in one simple step.  No scooping or waiting for one batch to finish so you can add another.

As I said before these cookie bars are super versatile.  You can change up the frosting color and sprinkles.  Like I did for these Funfetti Sugar Cookie Bars decorated in yellow, red and blue perfect for a circus theme party!

Thinking ahead and preparing early for a party is a great way to keep yourself from getting over whelmed.  The dough to these Valentine’s Day Sugar Cookie Bars freeze beautifully.  Have several batches without the sprinkles so you can customize the dough as you need it.

    1. I think this recipe was very easy to make my grandson is four years old. He and I had a fun time making this treat for his mommy for Valentine’s day. I added a few drops of red food coloring to the frosting to make it pink.
