Reeses Peanut Butter Bars

So I was rolling through photos on the computer, found this one on the desktop. Apparently, I had made these, went through the effort of photoing them, and then did nothing else with them. It took me an entire day to remember what I did to make them. I do remember that they were one of those recipes where I wanted to make something, but didn't have much oomph to go from scratch. I do always seem to have an abundance of candy. Sad thing, this might have been before I was pregnant and had no valid 'excuse' to have so much of one thing in the house. Maybe it was on sale.

Really no 'recipe' needed. Happened to be what I had on hand and sounded good together.

Reeses Peanut Butter Bars

Box of peanut butter cookie mix. ( I have slew of Krusteaz brand from a sale )
-ingredients required on the box to make said cookies
8 or so reeses peanut butter cups- coarsely chopped
1 cup or so of chocolate chips
caramel ice cream topping or homemade caramel drizzle if you feel you MUST make something from scratch

Make cookie dough as instructed.
Press firmly in bottom of 8x8.
Press in coarsely chopped reeses and chocolate chips.
Bake at instructed temp (350) for 20-25 minutes or until center is set. This might be longer than 20-25minutes, I'm stabbing at how long I had these in the oven.
When done, drizzle caramel topping.
Cut, eat. Remember that it's okay, not everything has to be made from scratch.

I realize that this isn't quite like my usual posts. That being said, the photo wasn't 1/2 bad, so I had to use it somewhere!

Happy Weekend!

Maybe you forgot how to actually make them because your mind was preoccupied with how yummy they looked!
