Somewhere in between a brownie and a cookie, you'll find these easy and over-the-top peanut butter-chocolate chip cookie bars. Starting with Betty Crocker™ Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix, we mixed in HERSHEY’S Cocoa for an extra-chocolatey base, then loaded on the REESE’S PIECES Candy and REESE’S Peanut Butter Baking Cups for a treat that’s sure to be a hit with anyone who loves peanut butter and chocolate.
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom and sides of 9-inch square pan with cooking spray.
In large bowl, mix cookie mix, cocoa, softened butter, water and egg with spoon until soft dough forms. Stir in 1/2 cup of the peanut butter chips and the sprinkles.
Using a metal spatula, evenly spread dough in pan. Sprinkle candies over top.
Bake 22 to 26 minutes or until set around edges. Cool 30 minutes.
In small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining 2 tablespoons peanut butter chips uncovered on Medium (50%) 1 minute; stir.
