Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Using floured hands, press the cookie dough onto bottom of prepared pan. Sprinkle chocolate pieces evenly over dough. Drizzle sweetened condensed milk over chocolate pieces; top with peanut butter pieces and peanuts. Press down firmly.

  • Bake about 25 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

  • For icing, in a small bowl, beat together powdered sugar, peanut butter, and 1 tablespoon milk. Stir in enough additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make icing easy to drizzle. Drizzle the icing over baked mixture. Cut into bars. Makes about 40 bars.


Prepare and bake the peanut bars as directed; cool. Drizzle with the icing; cut into bars. Cover tightly and chill for up to 3 days.
