Peanut Butter Candy Bar Brownies

A few of you asked me about this recipe from our small group party, so thanks for your patience! I loved making something different from what I normally do, and they are delicious. Easy to make, too. These brownies would make a wonderful New Year's or Valentine's treat. I saw a lot of Valentine goodies in a few stores this week, so I thought I'd throw that in there. Ha!
Peanut Butter Candy Bar Brownies

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

Preparation


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.

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

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

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. Yield: 28 small bars or 18 large bars.
