This is one of my family's favorite family night treats. It is quick and easy and so delicious. I like to make my own cookie dough and have a bit leftover for some chocolate chip cookies. I've also made it in a cookie sheet and cut it into squares which works well also. It is a fun treat that my kids love helping me make too.
