Peanut Butter Candy Bar Brownies


As far as desserts go, I enjoy making cakes and cupcakes most.  However, not all situations are cake and cupcake friendly.  When I need a sweet treat that must travel well I turn to bars.  Bars are usually pretty easy to make and they are very easy to  transport.  So when you have an occasion that calls for a no fuss (yet delicious!) dessert–say a picnic, a potluck, or an event to which you are going straight from work, I suggest you consider bars!

Let this be your warning: these Peanut Butter Candy Bar Brownie bars are addictive!  If you have a sweet tooth, these bars are definitely for you!  They are peanut buttery, chocolaty, chewy, and crunchy all at once! 

Peanut Butter Candy Bar Brownies:

  • 1  16 oz. package peanut-shaped peanut butter sandwich cookies (Nutter Butters), coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1  14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 /2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 5  1.5 oz. packages Reese’s peanut butter cups, coarsely chopped
  • 2  2.1 oz. Butterfinger candy bars
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts

Combine crushed cookies and butter in a medium bowl.  Press crumb mixture into bottom of a greased aluminum foil lined 9 x 13 glass dish.  Allow foil to extend beyond ends of pan.  Bake at 350 F for 6-8 minutes.

Combine condensed milk, peanut butter, and vanilla in a medium bowl.  Stir until smooth.

Sprinkle chopped candy bars, chocolate morsels, and peanuts over crust.  Drizzle condensed milk mixture on top.

Bake at 350 F for 27 minutes or until lightly brown.  Remove dish and place on a wire rack to cool.  Lift foil from pan and pull foil away from uncut brownies.  Let cool completely then cut into bars.
