Cookie Dough - Peanut Butter - Candy Squares

This square is Ahh-ma-ziiing!! Honestly.. it's one of the best treats you'll ever have! My friend Michelle made these at a few get togethers and I gorged myself on them at every one of them.. so I had to get the recipe from her.

Make these..and trust me, you won't regret it!! From the cookie dough crust, to the peanut buttery icing middle, chocolate ganache on top to the little m&m's... these are great from top to bottom!!

1 roll of Pillsbury refridgerated chocolate chip cookie dough
3/4 cup butter or margarine (softened)
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk
1 cup salted peanuts
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup miniature m&m's baking bits

Heat oven to 350 F.

In an ungreased 13 x 9 inch pan, break up the cookie dough with floured fingers, and press it into the pan evenly to form the crust. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Let cool completely.

In a medium bowl, beat 1/2 cup of the butter, the peanut butter, powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Stir in the peanuts and spread the mixture over the cooled crust.

In a saucepan, melt the chocolate chips and remaining 1/4 cup of butter over low heat, stirring frequently until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, stir the whipping cream into the chocolate chip mixture until well blended.

Pour the chocolate mixture overtop of the peanut butter mixture in pan and smooth out with the back of a large spoon. Immediately sprinkle with the m&m's baking bits, distributing the baking bits equally.

Refridgerate for about an hour. Then cut into squares and serve.
