Gotta sweet tooth?! These Cookie Lover’s Red Velvet Bars are loaded up with cookie dough bites, Oreo cookies and cookies and cream candy bars! They’re easy to make, too!
I have so many things planned for this year and I knew I needed to make some changes when it came to my health. I mean, I want to be around to enjoy all of these things I have planned, right?! Things have been going pretty good with making better food choices but exercise is still a struggle …. seriously, does it ever get easier?!
To be honest, I just do not want to do it so I try to make excuses – and then I remember all of the things I have planned ….. ugh!!
I have this mindset that I can still enjoy everything that I love – it just needs to be in smaller portions and in moderation …. and the biggest thing, is I need to move more. Whether that is true or not I don’t know – the jury is still out on that one but I guess we’ll see in a few months.
I have had a major sweet tooth for the past few days and it really sucks when you are trying to behave. While I have been doing pretty good with not giving in – I just could not resist any longer! I have tried different fruit to satisfy the sweet craving but let’s be honest … when you want a cookie, fruit is just not the same!
I kept thinking about cookies and seeing all things red velvet and it just made me want to put them together! I vowed I would make something but only have a little taste of it ….. ya know, for quality control purposes! 😀
In my defense, I did only eat one little tiny square …. even though these Cookie Lover’s Red Velvet Bars kept calling my name! My boys were more than happy to finish it off so I would not be tempted any longer.
And here’s the thing, I’m good for now. That little piece was just enough to make me feel like I wasn’t depriving myself of something!
These Cookie Lover’s Red Velvet Bars sure hit the spot. if you’re looking for a fun and easy Valentine’s Day treat – or if you just need a little something to satisfy a sweet tooth, these bars are for you!
