Fudge Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

2 16.5-ounce rolls refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough*

1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

1 12-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 2 cups)

2 tablespoons butter

Pinch of salt

Cooking spray

Set cookie dough out at room temperature for about 15 minutes to soften up a little. Spray a 13x9 baking pan with cooking spray; set aside.

Meanwhile, mix sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, butter and salt in a pan over medium heat until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat, stirring occasionally until ready to use.

Press one roll and 1/3 of the other roll of the chocolate chip cookie dough into the bottom of the baking pan. I laid a sheet of waxed paper over the dough then pressed the dough down with my hands to make quick work of this step. Pour chocolate mixture over cookie dough and spread evenly.

Using your fingers, pinch off small dollops of remaining cookie dough and drop evenly on top of chocolate mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until cookie dough is lightly browned.

Cool completely in pan then cut into squares. Store, covered, at room temperature.

*I bet these would be awesome with peanut butter cookie dough too!
