Peanut Butter Oreo Bars

Three of my favorite things…all wrapped up into these delicious peanut butter Oreo bars.

Peanut Butter Oreo Bars

Ingredients:

BOTTOM LAYER
26 Oreo cookies
1/3 cup melted unsalted butter
PEANUT BUTTER FILLING
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
CHOCOLATE TOPPING
5 ounces dark chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Line an 8×8 or 9×9 square baking pan with parchment paper, with overlay on the sides. Spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2.  Make the Oreo cookie crust by crushing the Oreos into a fine crumb using a food processor or blender. Mix the crushed Oreo crumbs and melted butter together in a large bowl. Place into the prepared baking pan, pressing the crumbs down into the pan to create a somewhat even layer.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer or using a handheld mixer, mix the peanut butter, butter, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and salt until the mixture is completely combined and smooth. Spread over the crumb mixture, smoothing the top with an offset or rubber spatula (sprayed with nonstick spray, for ease). Chill the bars for at least an hour, until the filling is set.
  4. Melt the chocolate in medium microwave-safe bowl, stirring every 15 seconds. Or use a double boiler. Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter filling and evenly spread. Chill the bars in the refrigerator for at least an hour or until the chocolate topping has set. Remove bars from the baking pan using the parchment paper and cut into whatever shape you want 🙂

Store bark in the refrigerator.
