These Outrageous Peanut Butter Candy Bars are over the top! They start with a buttery Nutter Butter Crust, chopped Reeses Cups, Chopped Butterfinger, peanut butter chips and chocolate chips, all topped with a creamy layer of sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter! OMG!!

Sometimes you make a recipe that really makes you stop and pat yourself on the back. I mean, let’s just pause and take a look at the picture of these Peanut Butter Cookie and Candy Bars. Soak it in. Soak it allllllll in.

These aren’t for the faint of heart. They aren’t for someone looking to cut calories. They aren’t for someone with a peanut allergy.

These are in your face full of peanut butter. And I love it.

There were a few tears involved in the making of this recipe, however. When I made the first batch I was in a hurry and I popped the tray in the refrigerator to help speed up the cooling process. Well, I balanced the pan on a tub of sour cream and a jar of leftover Hoisin sauce.

Turns out don’t do that.

One swift pull of the refrigerator door and my gorgeous tray of bars came crashing down into a sad pile of broken peanut butter promises. A tear or two was definitely shed.

But onward and upward my friends. I gathered my composure and started over.

It was worth it.

There are most likely 7,000 calories per bar. Just make peace with this.

All you do is crush up an entire package of Nutter Butter cookies, mix that with some melted butter and bake the crust for a few minutes. When it comes out of the oven top it with Reese’s cups and chopped Butterfinger.

Then top that with chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and a glorious mixture of peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk.

You could add some chopped peanuts too if you want!

Bake it for a bit and then let the whole pan cool completely before you slice into these beefcakes…but whatever you do, don’t balance the pan in the fridge on sour cream and Hoisin sauce.

Probably you should just be patient and let them cool at room temperature!

I balance stuff in the fridge way too often, then when the husband or kid go to get something I scream “BE CAREFUL!!!!!” I’m doing it more often now just so he’ll make room in the garage for another refrigerator.

These bars. I’m dying.

I read your blog all the time but typically never comment….you crack me up. This sounds like something I would do – the balancing act. Only mine was on top of the tea pitcher and guess what happened? A whole pitcher of tea all over my newly scrubbed kitchen floor. I was so not happy! I can’t wait to try these bars – thanks for another good recipe!!

I can’t wait to try these!! Omg! You’re killing me!! But I have a solution. As soon as the air tanker base opens for the summer, I’ll make a double batch of these and take them right out to everyone at the base. Will be sucked up in a matter of minutes!! I always try one bite first whenever trying a new recipe. I know I’m going to love these, I just have a sense about these kind of things. Lol. That’s why when I make stuff like this I always let my hubby know I’m bringing goodies to them.… Read more »

My brother thinks I make way too many peanut butter desserts, but how can I not with recipes like this! I love, love, love that you used Nutter Butters, Reese’s, and Butterfingers! This is definitely going on my list. (My brother thanks you, lol.)

Glorious madness! Sally. You are. The best. I can’t wait to try these! When I can’t wait for bars to cool, I put them outside in the cold/snow 🙂

My middle child LOVES, LOVES, LOVES her some peanut butter! She’s thinking I may need to make these! LOL After Easter, though, because she gave up candy for Lent. Or maybe for Easter. It’s not like the rest of us hate PB! Pinned!

I have a few near misses trying to balance things in my fridge too!! That is so sad the first batch fell! But I can definitely see why you had to make another batch right away because these look crazy good! I’m loving all the peanut butter goodness going on in them!

I made some peanut butter cups for my husband for christmas but most of them broke coming out of the pan and just don’t look pretty. I’m so excited to put them in these bars and make an even better treat!
