Ingredients

*Crust*

  • 16 oz chocolate chip cookies (crushed)
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter

*Filling*

  • 14 oz coarsely chopped assorted candy bars (Twix (Butterfinger, Milkyway, Three Musketeer, Snickers, Peanut Butter Cups))
  • 17 oz caramel ice cream topping (not syrup)
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 13"x 9" pan with non-stick aluminum foil, allowing it to extend over edges of pan.
  • Melt together butter and peanut butter for the crust.
  • Combine crushed cookies and peanut butter and butter mixture. If the crust is too moist add graham cracker crumbs as necessary up to 1/2 cup. Press mixture into bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 4-6 minutes.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Combine condensed milk, peanut butter, and vanilla, stirring until smooth.
  • Fold in mini chocolate chips. Set aside.
  • Heat caramel ice cream topping in the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften it slightly.
  • Sprinkle chopped candy bars over prepared crust.
  • Drizzle caramel over toppings.
  • Carefully spoon the sweetened condensed milk mixture over the caramel and toppings. Gently spread it to the edges of the pan so all of the caramel is covered.
  • Bake for 25-27 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool in pan on wire rack. Using foil, lift out of pan. Peel foil away, and cut into 2 - 3 inch bars.
