If you find yourself with way too much candy after trick or treating and fall parties this week, these cookie bars are a great way to use it up! I love making cookie bars to use up leftover candy.
Cookie bars are so easy to whip up and bake, and they just taste good! Thick, chewy and loaded with candy. . .what’s not to love?!
We don’t eat much candy around here, so if I get a bag of candy around the different holidays, I usually end up baking with half of it.
That’s what happened with my last bag of Reese’s peanut butter cups. If you don’t have Reese’s, any other chocolate candy would work just as well.
I just happen to have a love for all things peanut butter and find myself stuffing as much peanut butter as possible into my baked goods, especially these peanut butter overload cookie bars.
That’s why you’ll find lots of peanut butter, lots of chopped peanut butter cups, and lots of peanut butter chips in the ingredient list! Mix them all together and you have a peanut butter lover’s dream cookie bar!
