Peanut Butter Monster Cookie Bars


A kitchen sink blondie for you to throw in all the leftover partial bags of candy in your pantry. We all have them. Smarties, M&M's, Reese, Rolos... Whatever you have. It's soft and gooey and full of peanut butter and chocolate...mmmm.


All the magic happens in one bowl. Easy peasy. Start with a blondie base and add 1/2 cup peanut butter. Toss in all your leftover candies, morsels and chocolate bits. Stir it all together and spread it in an 8x8 pan.



It comes out soft and gooey. Set around the edges and slightly set on top, but soft and delicious inside. It sets up more after you take it out of the oven. Don't over bake it. Let it rest for at least a half hour before cutting into it. The next day...and all week if they last that long...it is still soft and chewy and peanut buttery and all those great things a perfect bar should be.


Give it a try! Enjoy!
