Today I have an amazing treat to share with you guys! They’re packed full of deliciousness and I made them in honor of a very special lady!
Some of you might remember when I posted these on Instagram a few weeks ago. And then again when I didn’t get around to photographing them for another week or so 🙂
Well the whole reason I made them was to virtually celebrate a very good bloggy friend of mine. Rachel over at The Avid Appetite is having a baby! A couple months ago Lauren over at Keep it Sweet emailed me about having a virtual baby shower for Rachel and I immediately jumped on board! So today, we celebrate you Rach…and when I thought of you, I immediately knew I needed to make a delicious treat. (Side note- Rachel sent me salted caramel brownies for my birthday this year so i KNOW her sweet tooth will appreciate these 🙂
For me, they were the perfect way to use up my leftover Halloween candy! With that, I give you…Candy Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookie Bars.
This isn’t a complicated recipe. Use your favorite peanut butter cookie recipe, or use the one I used. I made a few healthy adjustments to the Betty Crocker recipe but don’t be fooled…this recipe is definitely a splurge 🙂
Sound good? If you want to eat them warm, go for it…they taste great and are nice and gooey…but the cookie part will be a little crumbly until it cools.
Congratulations Rachel! We love you 🙂
