Oh my gosh, these cookie bars are delicious!  It's a classic magic cookie bar recipe with the twist of peanut butter.  I just love making magic cookie bars.  They are just so easy and so easy to customize with whatever flavors you like.  Of course, chocolate and peanut butter is a winning combination however you serve it, so how could you go wrong with these?

This time of year, I am all about finding new and fun cookie varieties to add to my holiday baking.  I have been known to bake 20 different kinds of cookies for the holidays in years past. Bake a little each day in the month of December and freeze them for eating and gift giving. I enjoy giving baked goods out as gifts.  This bar cookie will be on the list this year for sure.  It's so easy to throw together and it tastes great!  Like I said, a peanut butter lover's dream!

Skippy peanut butter is a staple in my house, but when I went to grab a jar, I saw I was all out. Luckily, I had already planned a trip to Walmart, so I picked up the supplies I needed to make these cookies while I was there.


When I got home, I got busy in the kitchen! See how easy these cookies are to make:

 Start by melting the butter and mixing it with crushed graham crackers. (I used my food processor to turn the crackers into crumbs) 


 Press the crackers into the bottom of the parchment lined pan. 


Combine a can of sweetened condensed milk with a 1/2 cup peanut butter. 


Spread the peanut butter mixture over the prepared graham cracker crust. 


Next, sprinkle on the toppings evenly...


 and press FIRMLY with a fork, then bake as directed.
