How to make Valentine’s Day Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars

You will need:

Sugar Cookie Bars dough

Mix softened butter and sugar in mixing bowl until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs and mix. Add dry ingredients.  (P.S. if you are someone who likes the taste of cookie dough and isn’t afraid of raw eggs, this dough tastes AMAZING!!!)

Add Sprinkles to the Cookie Dough Batter

Add 1/2 cup of sprinkles to the dough.

Mix the sprinkles into the dough

Gently mix the sprinkles into the dough.

Press the cookie dough into a pan

Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  You can skip this step and grease the cookie sheet instead but the parchment paper will really help the edges of the cookies to not get brown during the baking process.   Pour all of the dough out onto the prepared cookie sheet. Press the dough down onto the cookie sheet.  I greased my hands with butter to make the molding process a little easier. The dough is soft and sticky so it is a little tricky to get the dough evenly distributed in the cookie sheet.  You want the dough to be about 3/4″ high. It will rise to about 1″ high during the baking process.

Sugar Cookie Bar out of the oven

Bake the Valentine’s Day Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars in a 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.  Do not over bake the cookies.  It will not come out of the oven a deep golden brown – in fact, it might look a little un-done but it is not.  Use a toothpick to test it, if the toothpick comes out clean it is done.  If you bake these too long the bars will be dry.

Frosting the Valentine's Day Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars

Let the cookie bar cool completely and then frost them.  We used our super delicious Buttercream Frosting (recipe can be found here.)  We colored the frosting with red and pink food coloring from the Wilton Color Right Food Coloring system.  The light pink was 2 drops of Pink food coloring.  The Red color was 8 drops of Red.

Add sprinkles to the Valentine's Day Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars

Finally we added some of the same sprinkles on the frosting – don’t they look pretty?

  1. Does the frosting set enough to be able to stack the
    Cut bars with wax paper in between?

    • Yes, but in an abundance of caution, I would refrigerate the bars before stacking. We have also found the frosting cuts better after being in the refrigerator.

  2. Did you frost half pink and half red? Or did you make 2 batches?

  3. Making these for my daughter’s Valentine’s Day party at preschool! Can’t wait to try them

    • Hi Brandi, these will be a great preschool treat. They can be cut into little squares for little ones to enjoy. I hope everyone enjoys them.

  4. How did you cut the bars and thick icing so cleanly? They look wonderful!

    • Hi LeighAnne, thank you! We loved the way these turned out too. After we frosted the cookie bars, we put them in the freezer for a while to harden. Then we cut them. You get a much cleaner cut that way. Also, make sure to clean your knife each time.

      • Thank you! My other question: when you say “cookie sheet,” are you referring to the pan that is also a jelly roll pan? That’s what the picture looks like. My “cookie sheets” are totally flat. Just want to make sure I understand!

  5. These look so yummy! What size cookie sheet did you use?
