  • 3
    Bake 25 to 29 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 30 minutes.
  • 4
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave white vanilla baking chips uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds or until chips can be stirred smooth. Spoon melted chips into small resealable food-storage plastic bag; partially seal bag. Cut off tiny corner of bag; squeeze to pipe over top of bar. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.

Expert Tips

  • The secret for cutting bars easily is to line the pan with heavy-duty or nonstick foil. When it is time to cut the bars, just lift the baked bar with the foil out of the pan, and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
  • Customize this cookie bar for any holiday by using other colors of the candies and sprinkles.
