No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy Bars

In this household, anything containing peanut butter is popular. Since my niece is staying with us, peanut butter is even a bigger hit. Even though my husband tried, I think my niece ate the majority of this dessert. Now, I can't be certain since I did see him eating some for breakfast. If I had told on him, then my niece would have joined him and then I would have been in trouble with my sister. I think its funny how as adults we can break certain rules but only as long as we aren't caught by the children. These would be great for breakfast too but don't tell the children I said so. (I did learn my niece did sneak one for breakfast too.)
No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy Bars
24 Oreo cookies
4 cups miniature marshmallows
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 bag (10 oz) peanut butter chips
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
10 miniature Snickers bars, chopped roughly
1/2 cup miniature semi sweet chocolate chips

  1. Line the bottom and sides of a 13x9 baking pan with wax paper.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the cookies until finely chopped.
  3. In a large saucepan, cook the marshmallows and butter over low heat. Stir constantly until melted.
  4. Stir in the crushed cookies into the melted marshmallow mixture.
  5. Press the marshmallow cookie mixture into the baking dish.
  6. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the condensed milk with the peanut butter chips for 30 seconds. 
  7. Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds.
  8. Stir until smooth. If needed, microwave for another 15 second increments until the mixture is smooth. Don't overcook.
  9. Stir in the peanut butter and Snickers. Mix well.
  10. Spread the peanut butter mixture over the marshmallow cookie mixture.
  11. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the chocolate chips for 30 seconds. Stir well.
  12. Spread the chocolate over the peanut butter layer.
  13. Refrigerate for 1 hour or over night.
  14. Once chilled, lift the wax paper with the dessert from the pan and cut into bars.*

*Tip: The marshmallow cookie layer is hard to cut so use a sharp knife.
