Peanut Butter Bars

You talk about a Peanut Butter lovers dream! I thought since I have had such raves about the Peanut Butter Cheerio Bars, I would try something else with LOTS of peanut butter.

Warning: if you don't like peanut butter - don't even scroll down :)

Don't you hate when you go to Walmart (or anywhere for that matter) and take a list and leave with 100 other things and spend 200 dollars!?! This happens to me ANYTIME I go somewhere. Which usually I get cool things but my husband disagrees, heehee

I bought these cute flower plates that the Peanut Butter Bars are on below. Good luck with the recipe!

Cookie Layer:
1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tbsp milk
1 1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda

Middle Layer:

1 can condensed milk
2 tbsp unsalted butter
1 bag peanut butter morsels

1 bag Reese's Pieces
1 bag Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups

For the cookie, beat the Crisco, Peanut Butter, milk and brown sugar until creamy.  Beat in the egg. Add flour, salt, baking soda mix until thoroughly combined.
Press the cookie dough into a lightly greased baking sheet (15x10). Bake at 375 for 18 - 20 minutes or until is golden.

While baking, heat the condensed milk with butter over low heat until warmed. Remove from the heat and whisk in the peanut butter morsels and stir in until melted. Pour over warm cookie dough.

Immediately press candies into the top layer. Allow this to set up for about an hour.

Happy Hump Day :)
