If you hadn’t already noticed, I have an unhealthy obsession with peanut butter. In my case, it might as well be it’s own food pyramid with peanut butter candies at the top tier, peanut butter cookies, sandwiches and cereals on the second tier, peanut butter desserts and ice cream treats on the third tier, and peanut butter on a spoon on the bottom tier. I love it in all forms.

And with National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day coming up tomorrow (yes, March 1st is officially National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day), I don’t have to feel the least bit embarrassed about my undying love for peanut butter. So to all you lovely peanut butter lover’s out there, this recipe is for you…..

A thick, and I mean THICK, layer of rich peanut buttery cookie dough is sandwiched between the sweet vanilla creaminess of white chocolate, bedazzled with even more peanut butter happiness–Reese’s peanut butter eggs and tiny Reese’s peanut butter cups–and glitzed up with cute Easter sprinkles.

And to all you worry warts out there, never fear because this cookie dough is egg-free and TOTALLY wolf-down-able. Just make sure that you have enough left to put inside the bark before you enter scarf-down mode.

Prep Time 1 hour
Chilling Time 25 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 25 minutes
Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Servings 8 Servings

Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 16 ounces white chocolate
  • Candy (Peanut butter cups, Reese's pieces, etc.)
  • Sprinkles

Instructions
 

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Add the vanilla and salt and continue mixing.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add the flour. Dough should cleanly pull away from the sides of the bowl when it's done. Set aside.
  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Melt 8 ounces of the white chocolate in the microwave until smooth, then spread the melted chocolate into a rectangle that's roughly 8"x12". Transfer to the refrigerator until hardened, about 5 minutes.
  • Once hardened, scoop cookie dough evenly over the chocolate and use a rubber spatula or your fingers to gently press the filling into an even layer.
  • Melt the remaining 8 ounces of chocolate in the microwave, then spread on top of the cookie dough. Immediately add the candy and sprinkles. Chill until set, about 20 minutes. Break into pieces and serve.
