Three cookie bars stacked on a white plate

The Aphrodisiac Cookie Bar – a Nestlé Toll House redux

Childhood never got sweeter than a chocolate chip cookie. And one of my favorite childhood flavors was the good old Nestlé Toll House cookie bar, the classic cookie recipe spread into a pan and baked like brownies. I decided to bring that favorite back but with a distinctly adult (and aphrodisiac) twist. Here’s how I approached the challenge. First, I reduced the flour to make way for aphrodisiac oats, added the fruit of temptation in the form of applesauce, libido-boosting walnuts and, best of all, traded in those semi-sweet morsels for the sophisticated bite of dark chocolate chunks. This aphrodisiac cookie bar recipe is sure to bring back some old memories and make some new ones!
