Cookie Bars

Oh how I love chocolate and peanut butter together. My cookie bars are perfect for taking to potlucks or any party! I’ve combined my peanut butter cookie dough from last week with a cake mix I turned into the chocolate cookie layer and topped it with marshmallows and chocolate chips. I’m in love with these bars!

Press your peanut butter cookie dough layer into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. I used half of the dough. Use any peanut butter cookie dough recipe you’d like. I just had some leftover dough from last week and it worked great!!

I took a devil’s food cake mix and combined it with 1 stick softened unsalted butter and one egg. Give it a good stir and it will have a cookie dough consistency.

    I made this for dessert yesterday and it was very good. I did add some peanut butter and butter scotch chips just because I had them.
