My dad perfected my grandma’s chocolate chip cookie recipe. When I was growing up he would whip up batches of puffy, golden cookies, leaving the bowl of extra dough to be eaten by my mom and I.

As I grew older he passed on his secrets to me and I spent years in our kitchen mixing and measuring before one day, I finally pulled the cookie sheet out of the oven to realize I had replicated the recipe perfectly.

After a few years of doing this, boredom began to consume me and I started to experiment more with the recipe. Chocolate chip cookies are very versatile, I quickly learned, and I did everything from stuffing dough with S’mores to making layered cookie cakes to slutty brownies.

Recently I decided to whip up a batch in for a potluck dinner I had, so I went to the store searching for the ingredients I needed. After throwing the basics in my basket — flour, sugar, eggs, vanilla — I impulsively threw in some Nutella, Oreos, and marshmallows as well.

What resulted is a cookie-bar hybrid that probably weighed more than I do and tasted like heaven.
