Cookies and Cream Congo Squares {so sweet like sarah}

Living alone in my new house brings a lot of challenges.  For example, I may be tempted to eat the entire batch when I bake congo squares!  Meal time in general is difficult.  It's always easier to make more than it is to make small portions, so I'll be exploring main dishes and sides for one or two in the future on this blog.

Living alone also means you have to take care of all the chores.  This week I mowed the lawn for the first time EVER in my life!

This recipe was suggested to me by my sister.  It's definitely a twist on the typical congo squares (or congo bars) that are made with chocolate chips instead of Oreos.  I used double stuffed cookies which added a super creamy texture to the final product.  This is a very moist and very rich dessert and is definitely for sharing!
