Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel Bars #ChocolatePeanutButterDay

I was late to the chocolate-peanut butter bandwagon, but once I was converted, there was no going back. My oldest two children have joined me in this…err…addiction, but the hubby and youngest are still not on board. No worries, though; it just means more for me! And since I also adore caramel, these bars with the perfect way to get a triple fix. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel Bars are composed of peanut butter dough drizzled with caramel, then topped with chopped peanut butter cups and more cookie dough. Are you sold yet?
