These Cherry and Cream Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars make the perfect treat to bring to family and friends.

I hoooope you can find some cherry chips in the baking section of your grocery store.  They just made the BEST cookie bars ever.

Soft yet buttery crisp with the “cherries and cream” flavors going on.  Wrap these bars up in a cute bakery box, wrap with twine and surprise your friends with a fun festive treat.

Enjoy !

I found these Cherry Flavored Baking Morsels at one of my local grocery stores here in CA.  I know they can be tricky to find.  Keep your eyes open for them, they make such a festive cookie!  If you can’t find them, you can always substitute your favorite chocolate chip in it’s place.

Start by creaming your butter and sugars in your favorite large mixing bowl or stand mixer.

Add your egg and vanilla.
