Peanut Butter Candy Bar Brownies

Prep time 26 mins
Cook time 35 mins
Yield 28 small bars or 18 large bars
Peanut butter sandwich cookies become the crumb crust for these chunky bars loaded with chunks of candy bar.

Ingredients

  • 1 (16-oz.) package peanut-shaped peanut butter sandwich cookies, crushed
  • 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 chocolate-covered peanut butter cup candies, coarsely chopped
  • 2 (2.1-oz.) chocolate-covered crispy peanut buttery candy bars, coarsely chopped (we tested with Butterfinger)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1/2 cup honey-roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut

How to Make It

  1. Combine crushed cookies and butter in a medium bowl. Press crumb mixture into bottom of a greased aluminum foil-lined 13" x 9" pan, allowing foil to extend over ends of pan. Bake at 350° for 6 to 8 minutes.

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

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

  4. Bake at 350° for 27 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack, and let cool in pan. Use foil to lift uncut brownies out of pan. Peel foil away from sides of uncut brownies, and cut into bars.
