Candy Showers Cookie Bar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 sticks butter, softened
1/2 brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups milk chocolate chips (about 1 1/2 bags)
3/4 cup peanut butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl or mixer, blend butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy.
Combine flour, salt and baking soda and mix into sugar mixture:
After dough is blended well, add 3/4 bag of milk chocolate chips. I happen to love the brand below – they are big and so tasty!
Sprinkle top of cookie with remaining chocolate chips. Then divide the peanut butter into three big globs and place on top of the cookie/chocolate chips.
It will look like this when you are done:
You can also mix things up a bit for Halloween and make the cookie bar the same, except instead of using all of the M & M colors, just use the orange M & M’s, and the mini peanut butter cups. Voila – you have a fun and festive Halloween dessert!
