These bars are a spot on copycat for your favorite Girl Scout cookie made easier in bar form.
Do you love Tagalong cookies but hate waiting alllll year to buy them from the cute little girl scouts waiting outside of the stores? Well, fear not because this homemade version of them can curb your Tagalong cravings all year long! You see, my boyfriend is completely obsessed with these things. Any chance he gets to order or buy them, he will. Yesterday he came home with four boxes. FOUR BOXES of them. He is a Tagalong-aholic. I love baking little treats for him for when he comes home from work, so a few weeks ago when I made these bars, I sent him a picture of them to his phone. He immediately freaked out asking what they were because if you’ve been following this blog for sometime, you also know of his peanut butter addiction. It’s safe to say that when he came home and actually tried one, he was in love!
These homemade Tagalong bars are seriously awesome. I don’t even like Tagalong cookies that much but these bars, I could have inhaled the whole pan in one shot. Okay, maybe not the WHOLE pan, but close.
Buttery shortbread crust? Check. Sweet peanut butter filling? Check. Soft chocolate layer on top? Checkkkkk.
I mean, can you go wrong here? I think not. Sorry little Girl Scouts, but these homemade tagalong bars blow your little cookies to crumbs.
