Recipe Tips


Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides.  Separate 12 cookies to make 24 halves; place, top sides down, in single layer on bottom of prepared pan.


Melt 8 oz. chocolate as directed on package; spread over cookies in pan until completely covered.  Refrigerate 10 min. or until chocolate is firm.


Chop 4 of the remaining cookies; reserve for later use.  Crush remaining cookies into fine crumbs.


Beat peanut butter and butter in medium bowl with mixer until blended.  Add cookie crumbs; mix well.  Gradually beat in sugar.  Drop peanut butter mixture by large spoonfuls over chocolate layer in pan; spread to evenly cover chocolate.


Chop remaining chocolate; place in microwaveable bowl.  Add cream.  Microwave on HIGH 1 to 1-1/2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring every 30 sec.  Cool 15 min., stirring occasionally until chocolate mixture is thickened.


Spread chocolate mixture evenly over peanut butter layer; sprinkle with reserved chopped cookies.  Refrigerate 4 hours.  Use foil handles to remove dessert from pan before cutting into bars.
