Peanut Buttery Twix Bars

This is like a giant Peanut Butter Twix Bar! So good!! The original recipe called for 1 container of Rich and Creamy store bought chocolate frosting...yuck! So I changed the topping to a homemade frosting.

Peanut Buttery Twix Bars

Cookie Base:
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 egg
8 or 9 fun size Twix Bars, sliced in to 1/4 inch pieces

36 caramels (from 14 oz bag)
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1 c. sugar
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. milk chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350. Line a 13x9 inch pan with foil and spray bottom and sides with cooking spray. In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, and egg until soft dough forms. Press dough in bottom of pan. Press Twix pieces into the dough in even rows. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown.

Meanwhile, in a 2 quart saucepan, heat caramels and sweetened condensed milk over medium heat, stirring constantly until caramels are melted. Stir in peanut butter. Heat to boiling. Cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Spread over warm cookie base. Cool completely, about 2 hours.

For frosting, combine sugar, butter, and milk in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stir, remove from heat. Stir in chocolate chips  and let cool, stirring occasionally. It will thicken as it cools. Spread cooled frosting evenly over filling. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled. Cut into bars and store covered in the refrigerator.
