Candy Cane Cookie Bars - Somewhat Simple

I am mildly obsessed with Christmas traditions and most of my favorites include treats chock full of butter and sugar. These Candy Cane Cocoa Cookie Bars are no exception. Soft and gooey in the center with a hint of sweet peppermint, these are a perfect addition to any holiday party.

Begin by mixing together the dry ingredients.
