Layered Peanut Butter Bars

I am such a slacker! It's been awhile since I have posted a new recipe, sorry!!! But to make it up here are some delicious Layered Peanut Butter Bars!
When we first moved back to Hailey I was in Relief Society and the teacher that day brought treats for everyone. They were some peanut butter bars, I have dreamed about these things ever since I ate them that day....hehe Actually these may not even be exactly what they were, but these will do until I get the recipe... Let's get cooking!


The ingredients: Peanut Butter cookie Mix, Peanut Butter, Vegetable Oil, Powdered Sugar, Butter, Egg, Water, Semisweet Chocolate Chips and Milk.


In a large bowl combine all of the Peanut Butter Cookie Ingredients until a soft dough forms. Press the dough onto the bottom of a greased 9X13 dish. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

When it's done let it cool completely (about one hour).



Now we will start the filling. In a bowl mix 1/2C. butter, softened, 1/2 C. Creamy Peanut Butter, 2 C. Powdered Sugar, and 2 tsp. Milk.


Mix on medium speed until smooth.



Spread evenly over the cooled cookie base. (Sorry about the picture, it looks like white frosting, but it's not.)



Now for the topping. In a microwave safe bowl, mix 1 C. of semisweet chocolate chips and 1/4C. of butter and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Let cool for 10 minutes.


Spread the topping over the peanut butter filling. Now, it's almost done! Refrigerate for 30 minutes.



After the longest 30 minutes of your life, cut and enjoy!
