6 LAYERS OF INDULGENCE! A sugar cookie crust, pretzels, peanut butter cups, melted caramel, more sugar cookie crumbles & melted chocolate on top…
Step 1: Original recipe calls for 1 roll of sugar cookie dough. You can buy this and move to step 2 or you may want to make homemade dough as I did. If so, here is the recipe I used (EASY!):
Beat 1 stick butter in mixer with 1c. sugar.
Add 1 egg and 1 tsp. vanilla. Beat till combined.
Add 2c. flour, 1/2 tsp. baking powder and a pinch of salt. Voila! There is your dough! How easy was that!!!???
Bar ingredients (In addition to sugar cookie dough):
1c. chopped pretzels
3c. peanut butter cups
1/2c. chips of your choice!
Step 2: Press most of sugar cookie dough into an 8×8 pan. I lined mine with nonstick foil for easy removal. Reserve a little bit of dough to crumble on the top at the end. Just eyeball how much to reserve.
Step 3: Crush 1 cup of pretzels roughly with hands and put on top of dough.
Step 4: Roughly chop 3c. peanut butter cups and layer on top of the pretzels.
Step 5: Microwave 10 caramels and 1T. milk till melted, about 1 minute. Pour on top of peanut butter cups. Mmmmm!
Step 6: Crumble on the rest of the cookie dough that you reserved. Bake about 25 minutes till golden and cooked through. Let cool to room temp.
Step 7: Melt 1/2c chocolate chips-milk or semisweet and drizzle across the top when it is cooled. Eat up!
