Berry White Chocolate Cookie Bars – Cookie bars loaded with strawberries, blueberries and white chocolate chips. A delicious dessert perfect for the Fourth of July.
We’re headed to a Fourth of July party at my brother’s house tomorrow and I wanted to take something festive and delicious. Of course, it had to be red, white, and blue so I whipped up these delicious Berry White Chocolate Cookie Bars.
It’s hot and humid here in Maryland so I was feeling something light and fruity. These cookie bars are the perfect dessert for a summer backyard party. I love the strawberries and blueberries in this recipe but you could easily use all blueberries or any of your berry combinations.
This is what you need to make Berry White Chocolate Cookie Bars
- Flour, baking soda, salt, sugar, vanilla extract – all the usual baking staples that you probably have in your pantry.
- Butter and cream cheese at room temperature
- Fresh strawberries and blueberries
- White chocolate chips
Why we love Berry White Chocolate Cookie Bars
These cookie bars combine three of my favorite things – strawberries, blueberries, and white chocolate. The cream cheese makes these bars moist and fluffy and the fresh berries make these the perfect summer treat. And, I love how the strawberries look like stars.
Don’t they look delicious?
Now I have these amazing red, white, and blue cookie bars to share with everyone on the Fourth of July. I just need to keep them away from my husband before he eats them all.Print
