Valentine’s Day Peanut Butter Cookie Bars
- 1/2 cup butter, unsalted, softened
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup flour
- Valentine’s M&Ms
- Valentine’s sprinkles
- Reese’s hearts (about 6)
- White chocolate hearts (about 6)
1.) Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
2.) In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, peanut butter, sugar, and egg until smooth.
3.) Beat in the flour until a soft dough forms
4.) Fold in the M&Ms.
5.) Spread dough into a greased baking dish or one lined with parchment paper. Firmly press the dough down. (I used a 9×9 baking dish).
6.) Top with sprinkles and add some more M&M’s on top.
7.) Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes. You want to remove it when the edges are golden and you can stick a butter knife or toothpick in and it comes out clean.
8.) Place on a cooling rack and allow to cool but not completely.
9.) Unwrap the Reese’s and chocolate hearts and press into the top of the cookie bars.
10.) Slice and serve!
