Chocolate & Peanut Butter Bars

Yum
"Bars with peanut butter chips, Hershey's chocolate bars and Reese's mini peanut butter cups-Does it get any better than this?"
 "Oh My, this picture says it all doesn't it?" 
 
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup softened butter
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
10 ounce bag of Reese's peanut butter chips, divided
4.4 ounce Hershey's chocolate candy bar, broken into pieces
Reese's peanut butter cup minis, for garnish (from 8 ounce bag)
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  With an electric mixer, combine brown sugar, butter, milk, vanilla and flour.  (The mixture will be like a thick cookie dough.)  Stir in 1/2 of the bag of peanut butter chips.  Using fingers, press dough into a non-stick 9x13 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 28-30 minutes.  Remove from the oven and evenly place pieces of Hershey's chocolate bar on top.  Allow to sit for about 5 minutes to allow chocolate to melt.  Using a knife, spread chocolate out to edges of bars.  Allow to cool for about 30 minutes and then sprinkle remaining peanut butter chips over the top.  Cut into squares and serve with mini Reese's cups on top for garnish.  
 
TIP:  I love these bars slightly warm so I heated the leftover cooled bars in the microwave for about 10 seconds before serving.
