Peanut Butter Cup Pretzel Bars

 

 
 
It's almost Christmas!
 
My first winter in Hawaii is feeling surreal, with the palm trees and the sea turtles and such.    I finally moved into my apartment and it's chaos almost everywhere.    The living/dining room is a obstacle course of boxes.      I'm pretty sure I have more stuff than storage for it.   
 
Since I'm seeing my family via Skype, I'll just move to the patio and aim the camera towards the hibiscus or the palm trees and they'll never know.     If you're looking for one last easy treat that comes together quickly and can be done with the help of elves/children with small hands, this is it.
 
 
What You Need
 
1 roll of sugar cookie dough from the grocery store
1 cup of pretzels
1 11oz bag of Reese's Miniatures, unwrapped and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
 
What You Do
 
Preheat the oven to 350.     Line an 8x8 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
 
Press 3/4 of the roll of cookie dough to the bottom of the pan.      Top with the pretzels, broken by hand.      Top with the peanut butter cups and chocolate chips.     Drizzle with caramel sauce.     Break up the remain cookie dough and drop by small pieces on top - it won't cover the whole pan.
 
Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden on top.     Cool for 1-2 hours or put in the fridge.    Lift the bars up by the foil and cut into small pieces.
 
Perfect for gifting.    Or eating with your coffee or hot chocolate.
 
Are you ready for Christmas or is it sneaking up on you?
