Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars


My daughter and I are Cookie Dough Fiends.
Naturally, it's our favorite ice cream flavor.
We have a cookie dough pact.
When either of us bakes cookies, we have to save a chunk of the dough for each other.
She even named one of her kittens Cookie Dough. Seriously.

Now you understand why this recipe was a "must try."
Not to mention, it's in combination of another one of my faves, peanut butter.
It's a no-bake bar that's less cookie and more fudge.
Cookie Dough Lovers - unabashedly unite!
