Ultimate Reese's Magic Cookie Bars by Not Your Momma's Cookie

If you’re an instagram follower (which you should be if you like to see super cute kitties and Swiss Colony beef logs), you saw this lovely picture this weekend:

It was my 5 year wedding anniversary on Saturday. We don’t really do much for our anniversary – it is during the post-holiday “blah” period, so we’re kind of over the gift-giving and sugar-gorging. But, we happen to live very close to where we tied the knot, so we try to go there, if we can. It is always quiet, so we walk in, hand-in-hand, and just enjoy the moment and think about that whirlwind of a day.

Getting ready…

Seeing one another for the first time…

We took the time for fun pictures…

And even had a dance party!

There were heartfelt words…

And silly ones too…

But, the most important thing was that there was love.

Loads of it.

And there are loads of Reese’s® goodness in these bars! (see what I did there?)

Ultimate Reese's Magic Cookie Bars by Not Your Momma's Cookie

Seriously, they are exploding with chocolatey-peanut butter awesomeness. Start with a buttery, peanut butter cookie crust. Add chocolate and peanut butter chips, chopped peanuts, a big ‘ol bag of Reese’s® minis, and slather on some sweetened condensed milk. Try not to burn yourself as you shove a “straight from the oven” piece into your mouth.

 

Ultimate Reese’s Magic Cookie Bars
Recipe Type: Brownies & Bars
Author: Jennifer
Serves: 24
The ultimate dessert for chocolate & peanut butter lovers!
Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter sandwich cookie crumbs (this has a very thin crust – for a thicker crust, double the butter and cookie crumbs)
  • 2 cups chocolate and peanut butter chips
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped peanuts
  • 8 ounce bag of Reese’s minis
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease a 9×13 pan.
  2. Combine the melted butter and peanut butter sandwich cookie crumbs. Stir with a fork until combined. Press into the bottom of the greased pan.
  3. Add a layer of chocolate/peanut butter chips, then the peanuts, and then the Reese’s minis over the crust. Drizzle the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the entire pan.
  4. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool before cutting into bars (seriously, it won’t work until it’s cool!)
