Ingredients

Cookie Dough Bars

1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 cup flour, heat treated*

1/4 tsp salt

8 Butterfinger Fun-Sized bars, chopped

Chocolate Peanut Butter Topping

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter

2 Butterfinger Fun-Sized bars, chopped


Instructions

Add the butter to the bowl of your electric mixer fitted with blade attachment

Beat butter on high 1-2 minutes, using a rubber spatula scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl

Add the brown sugar and peanut butter, beat on high until smooth

Add vanilla extract, mix

In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, heat treated flour and salt

Slowly add the flour mixture to the mixing bowl and mix until well incorporated

Remove mixing bowl, add the chopped Butterfinger®

Using clean hands, fold the Butterfinger® into the cookie dough

Press cookie dough into an 8×8″ baking pan greased and lined with parchment paper. Make sure the paper hangs over the sides so it’s easy to lift out.

Place in the freezer to set, about 20 minutes

Once cookie dough bars are set, melt together the dark chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave in 30 second intervals until smooth

Pour over the cookie dough bars and spread in an even layer

Sprinkle with the chopped Butterfinger®

Place back in the freezer for 20 minutes to set the topping

Slice and enjoy!**


Notes

*Raw flour can make you sick, heat treat it before adding to no-bake. Spread the flour onto a parchment lined baking sheet, bake for 5 minutes at 350°F, cool completely before using.

**Bars keep best when kept refrigerated
