A CHOCOLATE RIVER!

BUCKLY YOUR SEATBELT BARS!

BUCKLE YOUR SEAT BELT BARS-YES, these are "THAT" good!

Step 1:Beat 1 stick butter in mixer with 1c. sugar.
Add 1 egg and 1 tsp. vanilla. Beat till combined.
Add 2c. flour, 1/2 tsp. baking powder and a pinch of salt. Voila! There is your dough! How easy was that!!!???

Filling ingredients you'll need
1c. chopped pretzels
10 caramels plus 1T. milk
3c. peanut butter cups
1/2c. chips of your choice!


Step 2: Press most of sugar cookie dough into an 8x8 pan. I lined mine with nonstick foil for easy removal. Reserve a little bit of dough to crumble on the top at the end. Just eyeball how much to reserve.


Step 3: Crush 1 cup of pretzels roughly with hands and put on top of dough.

Step 4: Roughly chop 3c. peanut butter cups and layer on top of the pretzels. (THIS TIME I ALSO ADDED SOME MINI PB CUPS FROM TRADER JOES!)

Step 5: Microwave 10 caramels and 1T. milk till melted, about 1 minute. Pour on top of peanut butter cups. Mmmmm!

Step 6: Crumble on the rest of the cookie dough that you reserved. Bake AT 350 FOR about 25 minutes till golden and cooked through. Let cool to room temp.

Step 7: Melt 1/2c chocolate chips-milk or semisweet and drizzle across the top when it is cooled. Eat up!
