Day 91: Peanut Butter Candy Bar Cookies for #SundaySupper

Halloween is officially upon us! The kids are super excited. Costumes are almost complete and the trick or treat plans are beginning to take shape. To kick off this fun week the #SundaySupper crew has put together a kickin' Trick-or-Treat Halloween Party. Our host, the talented Leslie from La Cocina de Leslie.

I decided to try and make a Halloween, peanut butter version of a twix bar candy bar. Other then the chocolate not looking perfect, they turned out fabulous!! I even found decided to add a mummy-like effect with some bright green chocolate.

1 stick plus 3 Tbs butter
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
White/Orange/Green Candy Melts

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Line a 13x9 pan with foil, spray with cooking spray
Mix together butter and sugar
Slowly stir in flower and salt
Press cookie dough into pan
Bake for 18-20 minutes
Cool completely
Mix together peanut butter and powdered sugar
Spread over cookie base
Freeze overnight
Cut cookie into desired bar sizes
Melt 1/2 orange and 1/2 white chocolate in a double boiler
Dip each bar into chocolate and cover
Once covered, remove and place onto a piece of parchment paper
When finished covering bars melt green chocolate in a squeeze bottle
Drizzle over the orange covered bars.
Once chocolate is set move candy bars into the refrigerator

I made my candy bars into "mummies", the boys LOVED them!
