Once these cookies have cooled, you want to move the cookies to a freezer bag or an airtight. The cookies can be stored at room temperature and should last up to a week.

Can Nuts Be Added to These Cookie Bars

The best thing about these cookie bars is that you can add whatever you like. If you like walnuts or pecans in your chocolate chip cookies, you can chop the nuts up and add them to these cookie dough.

Variations to These Cookie Bars

These cookies can be changed up and can have a lot of variations. Some of my favorite variations to chocolate chip cookie bars are:

  • Add nuts: Just like nuts in chocolate chip cookies, you can add a cup of chopped nuts to your cookie bars.
  • Add Raisins: You can add raisins or cranberries to these cookies instead of chocolate chips. The flavor is fantastic.
  • Add peanut butter chips or caramel chips: You can change up the flavor of these cookies by using peanut butter chips, caramel chips or even toffee chips.
